You and the Computer You’re Wearing

How will ubiquitous computing – wearable, intelligent, integrated with your nervous system – change how you define “me”? What if the blind could see and the deaf could hear through touch and haptic sensors? ASU’s Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing (CUbiC) develops games, “smart” objects and wearable systems to help you stay in shape, recover from a stroke, or rehabilitate more quickly from a nasty sports injury. What will you be like when your body and your clothes are all constantly wired into the Internet of Things? Will augmenting our senses with computing technology transform the way we define seeing, hearing, and feeling? CUbiC student researchers will rove through the crowd at the Carnival of the Future with hands-on demos, enabling visitors to interact with their technologies through touch, sound and/or visuals.
