EXTREME BEHAVIOR CHANGE
This is our forward thinking theoretical ideas where we believe engineering can enable new frontiers of research in behavioral and health sciences. We propose ideas such as leveraging automation to enable non-volitional behavior change, or leveraging haptic entrainment to enable subliminal breathing regulation.
Haunted Desk: Non-volitional behavior change with robotic furniture.
Dogbot: Desktop emotion regulation robots for K-12 students.
Subbreathe: Subliminal entrainment of breathing and hearth rate through haptic stimuli embedded in everyday furniture.
Driving withe the Fishes: Mixed reality stress regulation leveraging, e.g. combining VR and a moving vehicle. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/3287062
