August 2012-August 2013 • Master's Project


Robowall is an interactive display designed to show off all of the amazing projects being worked on in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute and the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. The project began with paper prototypes and motion-graphic mockups in the fall of 2012 and is currently nearing the end of development, with three touchscreens mounted at Carnegie Mellon running a javascript-based front-end interface. Another goal for this project is to perpetuate the usage of these touchscreens and give students the opportunity to develop large-scale touchscreen applications with minimal effort and show them off to the campus community.
