Fragile Eggs is a game to study the development and ‘trainability’ of the foundational visual-spatial cognitive skill of mental rotation. The objective of the game is to improve mental rotation in players. Andie Hshieh made amazing graphics for the game, and Li Chen Han programmed a smooth and beautiful game mechanic for the iPad. Faraz Farzin, the Chief Scientist at the Social Apps Lab, ensured that the game is relevant in terms of cognitive development. In January 2012, Fragile Eggs was play teste with volunteers at the Berkeley School to establish the typical base-line performance of mental rotation in our game.
Surgical robotics and health informatics are two key technologies that form the basis of a collaboration between the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University (FAH-SYSU) and CITRIS.
Research partners from MITRE, CITRIS Health, UC Davis and UC Merced worked with health care teams to identify digital health barriers and co-create new ways to address them.
Working in partnership with senior living providers, Lighthouse researchers conducted focus groups with residents and staff to identify barriers to technology use.
