The Interaction Laboratory at POSTECH, directed by Prof. Seungmoon Choi, seeks to find and design easy, effective, and novel interaction methods between human users and a system of interest, e.g., computers, robots, cars, and electronic device, with emphasis on physical interaction where the human somatosensory system has the major role.
We have won a new research grant from the Support Program for the Reinforcement of Science Culture Exhibition Service funded the National Research Foundation of Korea. In this project, we will study the technologies, systems, and long-term user experiences for blending real and virtual exhibits in order to promote in-depth, embodied learning of scientific principles, in close collaboration with Prof. Keehoon Kim in mechanical engineering and his lab members. We will be supported 770 million won for 2.5 years.
We have renamed our laboratory from Haptics and Virtual Reality Laboratory to Interaction Laboratory, reflecting our expanded research areas over the past 15 years. A new homepage is also launched, which is what you are looking at.
