CSC318 ASSIGNMENT 1 1 COMPUTER SCIENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO CSC318H1F THE DESIGN OF INTERACTIVE COMPUTATIONAL MEDIA
Assignment 1: Harness New Technology Google ATAP has been developing new technologies that allow us to interact with computational media in ways beyond the traditional interaction paradigms and closer to natural human movements and behaviours. Project Soli is one such endeavour. At the heart of this project is the development of a new interaction sensor that relies on radar technology to accurately and efficiently capture tiny and discrete hand motions. In essence, this sensor transforms the human hand into a control mechanism. The goal of this assignment is to imagine and propose a new application for this technology. This assignment is individual; pairs and teams are not allowed. Instructions: 1) Watch the videos below to learn more about Project Soli and the applications recently pursued by HCI people around the world: a. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QNiZfSsPc0 b. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H41A_IWZwZI 2) Can you think of a creative, complex problem where this new interaction sensor may be a solution? Come up with a new application (not from either of the videos above!) that meets the following criteria for use of this sensor: a. Embedded in or involving an everyday object, such as a table, pencil, etc. b. Using tiny movements of the hand, including fingers, the wrist, etc. c. Transforming the hand into a control mechanism. 3) Outline the main task and 3-6 steps/interactions involved in completing the task. Be sure to describe the input and output at each step/for each interaction. You may use one of the following methods: a. Text description, that may be supplemented with visuals. b. Illustrations, with appropriate text descriptions. c. Animation and/or video (< 5 mins), demonstrating the task and steps. 4) Explain how your idea harnesses Project Soli’s new interaction sensor technology by referencing the criteria above. CSC318 ASSIGNMENT 1 2 Rubric: Criteria Weight Description of your idea (new application of the technology); ~½ page. 10% Description/illustration/demo of main task and steps/interactions; ~½ page. 50% Explanation of how criteria was met; ~½ page. 30% Proper formatting, conciseness, spelling, and grammar. 10% Deliverable: A single PDF file named A1-LASTNAME.pdf. 1” margins, Arial font, 12 pt, 1.5 line height. Structure as follows: § Title page with your name, UTORid, and preferred contact email. § Idea: o Description of your idea, § Main Task: o Description/illustration/demo of main task and steps/interactions, § Explanation: o Explanation of how criteria was met. If you created an animation or video, include the URL to the video (e.g., YouTube) where you would normally place a text description of the main task and steps/interactions.
