Personal Fabrication Overview
Personal Fabrication Research in HCI and Graphics: An Overview of Related Work

This website provides all papers publushed in personal fabrication in the HCI and Graphics communities. Each paper comes with an image, a short description, and links to the pdf, video, and a webpage if available. In addition, all papers can be sorted by conference and year. We hope this will help newcomers in personal fabrication to quickly get an overview of the field and for everyone else to quickly scan for related work.


SoftAR
SoftAR: Visually Manipulating Haptic Softness Perception in Spatial Augmented Reality
(IEEE ISMAR 2014/2015, IEEE TVCG 2015, ACM SIGGRAPH 2016 [Invited Talks], and MIRU 2016 [Invited Talks])

We present SoftAR, a novel spatial augmented reality (AR) technique based on a pseudo-haptics mechanism that visually manipulates the sense of softness perceived by a user pushing a soft physical object. Considering the limitations of projection-based approaches ...


LazyNav
LazyNav: 3D Ground Navigation with Non-Critical Body Parts
(ICAT-EGVE 2014, IEEE 3DUI 2015 [Best Paper Award], and IEEE TVCG 2016)

We propose a mid-air ground navigation control model which lets the user’s hands, eyes or local head orientation completely free, making use of the remaining tracked body elements to tailor the navigation. We also study its desired porperties, such as being easy ...


DeforMe
DeforMe: Visualization of Tangential Surface Deformation using Invisible Textures
(KJMR2013 [Best Presentation Award], ACM SIGGRAPH Asia 2013: Emerging Technologies, and Springer-Verlag Virtual Reality 2015)

We proposed a technique to estimate the surface deformation using invisible textures. We aimed to used proposed technique to support the surface visualization in projection-based mixed reality technologies ...

Mentoring & Teaching


TEACHING

6.813: User Interface Design and Implementation [at MIT CSAIL]
Develop the class materials (e.g., assignments). The class covers design priciples, prototyping techniques, evaluation techniques, and the implementation of graphical user interfaces. Deliverables include short programming assignments and a semester-long group project.

IAP: Build your own Multi-Touch Pad [at MIT CSAIL]
Support the students in the class for hardware and software implementation. The class cover the learn laser cutting, electronics breadboard prototyping, soldering, and computer vision.

6.S063: Engineering Interactive Technologies [at MIT CSAIL]
Teaches how to build cutting edge interactive technologies and provides an overview of each field. Topics covered include multitouch, augmented reality, haptics, wearables, brain computer interfaces, tangibles, fabrication, and more.

MENTORING

Project Cyber-Manufacturing (Undergraduate Student) [Jiamin He at MIT CSAIL]
This project introduces a new method for personal fabrication through the cross-manufacturing. The goal of this project is to provide a 3D prototyping tool that assist the user in 'online-to-offline' manufacturing warehouse.

Project Food + Perception (MIT SuperUROP) [Xin Wen at MIT CSAIL]
This project investigates a food-fabrication technique that automates food-perception tricks to reduce calorie intake. We will investigate a computational model that estimates perceived satiety over food based on user psychophysical experiments, and build a prototype system that automates food-perception tricks to control calorie intake.
