EyeTable Aids You Through Your Date


The EyeTable won Honorable Mention in the 2nd annual Smiley Award (named for Professor Scott Fahlman who created :), the smiley emoticon,) presented by Yahoo for innovation at Carnegie Mellon University. Undergraduates Ilya Brin, Dan Eisenberg and Kevin Li came up with the clever furniture that analyzes how people respond to each other during dates. The technology uses headsets and Wii controller technology to study gestures and speech patterns.

Grafitter took the top award, $500.00 and a crystal trophy, for technology that allows you to collect personal information such as word usage, tags, and Grafitter-formatted tweets, and show it in graph form on Twitter. Designed by Ian Li, this is what came up when we entered our twitter name, "robot news." We don't need a graph to tell us what we are most focused on. You can head to the site if you would like to play with the demo.
