On July 17th, 2017 I was asked to present my research about Designing Networked Objects at HCI 2017. I spoke about my involvement with Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s Health Design Lab and my project with Vancouver Coastal Health organization on a project to encourage more hand sanitizer use in their hospitals. With my colleague, Jonathan Aitken and students Grey Vaisius, Jill Southern and Brandon Visser we created a ‘smart’ hand sanitizer that was installed in the foyer of the Vancouver General Hospital and recorded data on how it was being used and produced a colourful visualization that was then presented back to people in the hospital’s foyer in realtime. The results were immediate and the use of the sanitizers grew with each iteration of the prototype. Here’s the slides from my presentation.
