Two Graduation Presentations, April 28
Thursday April 28, 11:00-13:00 - Academiegebouw Leiden
11:00-12:00 - Joey van der Bie Pleasure reading with soundscapes in a sound rich environment An important aspect of pleasure reading is the reading experience. To reach an optimal reading experience the reader needs to be able to block stimulation of the environment. This ability to block needs to be more developed when environment noise is high and is not always present among readers. We looked into a way to contribute to the reader his blocking ability using soundscapes. The soundscapes were custom made for the settings of a paper book. Supervisor: Maarten Lamers 12:00-13:00 - Antal Ruhl Experiments with Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation in Daily Activities: An Informal Look into its Suitability for HCI The human vestibular system has been extensively studied using Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation (GVS). Most experiments focus on vestibular disorders and use confined tests in a laboratory environment. The present study focuses on the effect of vestibular stimulation in every day life and its suitability as an HCI technology. In contrast to other experiments the present study uses a GVS device which is dependent on the head movement of the test subject. Effects of various GVS schemes (both correlated and uncorrelated to head movement) on several everyday activities are investigated. The experiments yield very interesting results, which provide incentives for further experiments to accumulate more evidence.
