creative use of technology
Leonardo Da Vinci was the quintessential Renaissance thinker who combined ideas from many disciplines. What ideas do you have to lead us into a new era? What tools, materials, and mentoring would it take to get your idea off the napkin and into the real world? Is your idea Leonardo-worthy? The DMC has money available for creative projects!
Amelia Voos and her team (Max Jarcho, Dan Matsumoto, Danielle Naassana, Bridget Chen, K.J. Burnett, TJ Jois, Irving Nestor, and Chris Wend) combined their efforts with technical support and artistic guidance from the DMC to create this interactive artwork, “Enlighten” which debuted at JHU’s 2016 Lighting of the Quads. Enlighten
Jamie and Kemi created a multimedia dance composition including live dance and video projections for the 2016 Temps d’Afrique annual dance showcase.

MoTrack Therapy is a software application that uses the Leap Motion tracking device to let users practice hand and wrist physical therapy at home.
Campus tours are one of the most effective ways to showcase JHU to potential students. With assistance from the Office of Admissions, “RoboJay” will guide tour groups, starting from its charging station in Mason Hall, through the beginning portion of the JHU Undergraduate Tour, focusing on the robots that live
The interactive projection system prototype displays images on the floor that are responsive to the movement of people through the environment. The movement of the objects on the floor triggers different animations that “follow” the person, creating an interactive experience with the students. The team leveraged a Java API endpoint

Electric skateboards are not uncommon, and hand based throttle systems make up the majority of eboards on the market. While some eboards have an acceleration switch on the board that is activated by stepping on it, the weight-difference-sensing eboard design featured here offers advantages over the typical foot-actuated design.
