Microsoft PixelSense For Bushfire Preparation

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick post this morning to let you all know that today we have Mark Brown from the Human Interface Technology Lab at UTAS visiting the Battery Shed to run some user trials for his PhD research.

Mark and Troy getting set up for the first trial of the day.

Mark is looking at how large touch screens, like the one in the Microsoft PixelSense, can be used to help people prepare their bushfire safety strategy.

If you'd like to participate in the trials today, please feel free to get in touch with us via our contact page.  If you can't make it today, but you'd like to check out the PixelSense and learn more about Mark's research, then you can contact Mark directly.

If there's a bit of interest from people who can't make it in today, we can definitely look at bringing Mark back for another tour sometime over the next few weeks.
