Human-Computer Integration

Primary supervisor

Floyd Mueller

Research area

Exertion Games Lab

The rise of technology that supports a partnership between user and computer highlights an opportunity for a new era of “human-computer integration”, contrasting the previously dominant paradigm of computers functioning as tools. This project focuses on embodied integration, where a computer tightly integrates with the person’s body. 


Required knowledge

This project draws on a recent Dagstuhl Seminar ( that brought together leading experts from industry and academia, including those who are central to the development of products and ideas such as wearables, on-body robotics, and exertion systems. The goal is to address key questions around the design of embodied integration and to jump-start new approaches for a playful human-computer integration future.
