Two torcs that track the position of multiple other people wearing them on small vibrotactile 180 degree displays. Both vertical and horizontal position is tracked. Letting you know if someone is above, below or in which direction. But not being able to know who. Possibly learning to discern by recalling patterns of movement.
A gauntlet that acts as a receiver and transmitter of IR signals. Allowing the user to send their hand gestures to another person who wears the same device. As this is IR they have to be within view of each other (or at least the gauntlets do.) The upper arm portion consists of motors that constrain five evenly spaced rings. These act as feedback for what the other's fingers are doing. Allowing for fast (with practice) silent local communication.Prototype
Instead of connecting directly to WiFi this device lets you see your own network traffic. The device connects to the network, while you connect to it. It shows incoming and outgoing connections and data volumes. The visualization is accomplished via led lighting.
