Geek-Picnic in Jerusalem

Over the course of Passover vacation, we visited the first ever Geek-Picnic, held in Jerusalem. We saw fascinating displays of technology and innovation in various fields, and attended some very interesting lectures. We had the privilege of presenting the lab’s research projects in two separate lectures. We talked about our design processes and research methods, along with live demos of some of our prototypes: TangiPlan, simulated an ongoing morning task, Kip, a robot that shivered as audience members were asked to raise their voice at it and Vyo, our newest robot showed how it maintains the various operations of a smart house while communicating using expressive gesture. We hope to return again next year with new and exciting projects and to see what other HCI projects are being developed in both industry and academia in Israel!
