Two of my undergraduate research assistants, Josh Clairmont and Shawn Bryan, won an Award of Excellence at the 2012 Undergraduate Research Conference. The URC is UNH’s annual event aimed at engaging undergraduate students in research.
Josh and Shawn created a tangible user interface for the Microsoft Surface multitouch table. Their interface allows users to play a game of air hockey on the Surface. Josh, a computer engineering senior, was in charge of creating the Arduino-based game controller. Shawn, a computer science senior, created the game on the Surface.
Here is a video introducing the work of Josh and Shawn:
Congratulations Josh and Shawn!
