  • Above The Surface Interaction

    I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. – Thomas Edison This past year, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work on several projects that did not go anywhere. I would started getting discouraged when it was clear a project was not going to arrange itself into a nice academic paper-sized […]

  • Surface Monster Nom Nom Nom

    Someone on the Microsoft Surface team was nice enough to send me a project they were working on. Enjoy! This was a whimsical project that received some notice at CHI 2009 as a novel way to extend the interface space of the tabletop into the space above it. What I really like about this “augmented […]

  • Where I'm going, where I've been

    Near the end of the first semester of my Master’s, my research topic was becoming clearer – along the lines of “teaching the use of gestural interfaces”.

  • Some boardwork

    There’s a lot of advantages to having a massive chalkboard in my house. One is the quenching of my large writable space fetishism. Another is being able to work on my thesis and a set design at the same time. Image processing algorithm design for my thesis on the left, set design scribbles for the […]

    Back in Grade 11, a few friends and I innocently made a music video cover of Nelly’s Ride Wit Me. We really weren’t seeking artistic integrity at the time, just seeing what we could do with some video editing and shooting. Also, one of the guys I was working with was incredibly rich (as as […]

  • Bacon's Lover Blog Post #325: on the road

    Fuck I love bacon. Sometimes I get really intense cravings, and I want to be able to just snap my fingers and have bacon rain from the sky (see Perry Bible Fellowship). I want to eat bacon on with everything. With mustard, with eggs, with cats even. Are the new viewers gone yet? I’m on […]
