There is an opportunity to prototype interactive muscle memory systems and study their use in order to understand what designers can learn from remembering activities that involve the active human body in regard to designing interactive systems.
This project will utilize the Exertion Games Lab’s Qualisys motion capture system and the electronic muscle stimulation system (amongst others). The candidate will engage with prototyping equipment to invent a series of future playful muscle memory experiences and study the associated user experiences. This work is in collaboration with Elise van Den Hoven (elisevandenhoven.com). See also our dedicated post about this on our website.

The result will be a thesis in the field of interaction design.
