A virtual reality experience in a dystopian world. With Love, Thunderbird is the story of a woman, nick-named Thunderbird, Peter and the struggles they face living in a society ruined by an unsuccessful coup and a string of useless ‘presidents’ who only accomplished increasing the inflation and unemployment rates. You play as Peter, navigating your way through this new world with your small robotic bird guide, with one simple goal: get medicine for Thunderbird.
Modern sensor technology is beginning to allow for cost-effective deployment of air gesture interfaces in the vehicle. Unlike the current standard of direct touch, air gesture interfaces do not require that the driver takes their eyes off the road, especially when coupled with properly applied auditory or tactile feedback. While emerging systems like Apple Carplay and Android Auto support limited speech commands, the majority of tasks still require visually targeted touch interaction, which poses a safety hazard to drivers.
We present a study of Internet use and its forced non-use in Bangladesh. In light of current initiatives on state and industry actors to improve Internet access and bridge the 'digital divide' for underserved, under-resourced, and under-represented communities across the world, we offer a situated, qualitative perspective on what the current state of Internet use looks like for select social groups in Bangladesh. We analyze how a state-imposed ban attempted to effect the non-use of particular web-based services and how the affected populations found or did not find workarounds in response.
A system that has helped bring digital record keeping to hospitals across Africa has received a needed update for new platforms like smartphones and tablets.
