Hardware and Devices

Connecting users more naturally with their computing environment


Our research focuses on developing devices that will connect users more intimately, naturally, and efficiently with their computing environment. The devices range from large displays to wearable devices to micro-electro-mechanical systems. We collaborate with other groups to build the hardware that will support the next generation of software. We’ve developed ideas for new types of microphones and unique data-input devices, and we’re researching reconfigurable computing hardware.
