About us

The Human-Computer Interaction group of the Leibniz Universität Hannover was founded in July 2012. We are working on new interaction techniques for mobile, embedded, and ubiquitous systems.

Jul 26, 2015 Niedersächsische Talente-Akademie

At the Niedersächsische Talente-Akademie we give a one-week course on Android Game Programming. Students of schools from all over Lower Saxony develop 2D games with touch screen and accelerometer control using the libGDX framework. The results will be presented and demonstrated to other students, parents, and faculty.

Jul 16, 2015 Hannover HCI at UbiComp 2015

We will present a short paper and a poster at UbiComp 2015. We are especially happy that a project of three students from our Current Topics in Human–Computer Interaction class will be shown as a poster. Hatice, Markus, and Oliver augmented an IKEA KLIPPAN sofa with several electrodes and then applied machine learning to the capacitive sensor values in order to distinguish several postures. People sitting on the couch could then control a smart room and, for example, change the lights.
