Visiting Patrick Baudisch at HPI

Wow, 6 months at Patrick Baudisch's new Lab at the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam, Germany. Patrick is one of the few rock stars in HCI and especially research on touch and multi touch interaction. His brainstorming sessions are legendary (and I can't wait to see the sniff-o-meter in action).

By the time he bought this saw I knew he was serious about building the new Luminos (get the CHI paper here). Did I mention that the saw moved into the women's loo?

It was a brilliant time at Patrick's lab and I think it was the most intense learning experience I've had in a while. My project with him was focussed around sound based overview techniques for object detection and metaphors to improve distance perception with sound. A publication is in preparation!
