4TU.H&T Hectic Haptics Hackathon on telepresence, teleoperation, embodiment and haptics
On Wednesday, 21st of March, we held our first 4TU Hackathon on telepresence, teleoperation, embodiment and haptics. Fifteen researchers and students with various backgrounds, ranging from from control engineering to philosophy, met up in the DesignLab at the University of Twente. Besides researchers with 4TU H&T affiliation, there was also a group of researchers from TNO who collaborate with the UTwente on this topic in the context of the I-Botics project (www.i-botics.com).

Two-day workshop on Virtual and Augmented Reality
Two-day workshop on Virtual and Augmented Reality
Virtual and augmented reality technologies offer people immersive experiences by exposing their senses to computer-generated imagery, sound, and haptic stimulations. Virtual reality temporarily isolates people from the real world and offers them a computer-generated environment. Augmented reality, on the other hand, blends the real world with computer-generated objects. In two days of workshops, key interaction concepts behind these technologies will be discussed, as well as their applications in the mental health domain.

Research meet: Fitter, happier, more productive? The Science and Technology of Behavior Change
Research meet: Fitter, happier, more productive? The Science and Technology of Behavior Change
Technology is seen to help countless people in many ways, but does it actually help people become fitter, happier or more productive? The road to a healthier life can be interpreted in more than one way and sometimes with unforeseen contingencies when technology is involved. The research meet "Fitter, happier, more productive? The Science and Technology of Behavior Change" that took place on September 25th at TU Eindhoven addressed this topic.
