Human Media Lab, Queen's University

"The Human Media Lab (HML) is one of Canada's premier multidisciplinary media laboratories. Inventions from our lab include the eye contact sensor, attentive user interface technologies (Google TechTalk), the first foldable paper computer, and the use of audience metrics in digital signage.

We are currently working on the design of Organic User Interfaces (Oui!), computers in any shape or form (see for a special issue on the topic).

HML is directed by Dr. Roel Vertegaal, Associate Professor at Queen's University's School of Computing. Working with him is a number of graduate and undergraduate students with Computing, Design, Psychology and Engineering backgrounds."

Smart Glasses Detect Eye Contact

"A pair of sunglasses that can detect when someone is making eye contact with the wearer has been developed by Canadian researchers.

Besides being useful in singles bars, its inventors say the system could play a key role in video blogging, a hi-tech form of diary keeping.

Video bloggers record their lives from the point of view of a first person video narrative. 'I think this is something that we will see over the next few years,' says Roel Vertegaal, co-creator of the glasses at Queen's University's Human Media Lab, in Ontario, Canada.

The main problem is the tedious process of editing out the dull bits where nothing much happens, says Vertegaal. So the glasses allow a video blogger to automatically detect and record interactions and conversations with other people."
