Graham Pullin’s research explores nuanced tone of voice and materiality in the contexts of augmented communication and prosthetics. These are fields that employ the emerging technologies of speech technology, affective computing, robotics/bionics and digital manufacturing and are often defined in terms of these technologies. Yet people’s voices and hands imply the expression of individual identity and social interaction. This involves design qualities that transcend the technologies within and often connect back to deeper cultural reference points.
In collaboration with the senior design group in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Techne is pleased to announce that the Trekker will appear soon with a new permanent solar-powered electrical system. UB faculty, staff, and students interested in using the Trekker should contact the institute at firstname.lastname@example.org.
