Current Research

HandMark Menus
HandMark Menus are rapid access techniques specially designed for large multi-touch surfaces. There are two versions of HandMark Menus, and both place commands in spatially stable spaces around and between the fingers of both hands, so with practice, users can learn locations of commands by taking advantage of the proprioceptive knowledge of their own hands and fingers.
Jelly Polo: a sports game using small-scale exertion
Sports video games should be inherently competitive, but they fall short in providing true competition for the players.
SWaGUR: Saskatchewan-Waterloo Games User Research
The Canadian computer game industry is the third largest in the world, behind the USA and Japan. The sector contributes $2.3 billion annually to Canada's GDP, it employs 16,500 people, and the demand for skilled talent in creative and technical roles is increasing: 40% of Canadian game companies expect over 25% growth in the next 2 years.
