MOUTH3D

About The Project:

Mouth3D provides convenient and intuitive way to interact with computer in three-dimensional space. The device has one millimeter accuracy and works within volume of cubic meter. The sensor in the mouse emits ultrasounds which in turn are detected by four microphones placed on a desk. The technology has lots of possible applications, the main goal is to create a controller for virtual reality, which would enhance the experience of users. A special glove with our sensors could be used instead of a pad for tracking player's moves and actions. Additionally, the technology is very cheap, and we target to create a device with use of only popular analog electronic components.

KOMO&NIK

About The Project:

Komo&Nik is cooperation game for PC and Xbox 360 in which we take from rich people and, like legendary Robin Hood, give it to the poor. Task is not an easy one. Considering the size of items we must cooperate closely while moving to avoid damaging them, because broken item won’t help anybody. Additionally hitting the wall will draw the owner to us and that results in failure. We can use objects in the house of the owner against him, alluring him and distracting his attention from our actions. To help us recognize the situation heroes highlighters help us determine what we have to take out and what we can use as a tool of distraction.

MORHPEUS

About The Project:

An application of innovative indirect biomedical techniques to achieve comfortable, mobile and reliable medical sleep monitoring. Morpheus is wirelessly integrated with a smartphone, which retains all data. In wristband, there are 4 sensors. Photoplethysmographic sensor provides data about pulse, respiration and blood. Galvanic skin delivers a way to measure mind activity. Thermometer delivers data about users temperature. The last one is inertial 9-axis sensor which identifies body activity and orientation. Based on that, you can evaluate quality of sleep. Morpheus use phone sensors, like light sensor and microphone, which provide user with environment analysis during sleep. That will help user to monitor influence of environmental on his condition of sleep.
