The Superhuman Computing Lab is a research group in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, devoted to research on accessible, mobile, and wearable technologies. It is directed by Shaun Kane.
Our research focuses on projects that enhance people's physical, sensory, and creative abilities. Our current research addresses the following problem areas:
- Accessibility. How can we make current and future technologies more accessible to people with disabilities and other underrepresented groups? How can we leverage emerging computing technologies to enhance individuals' current abilities?
- Mobile and wearable computing. How can we design mobile and wearable computing to support users on the go, especially when working in distracting environments?
- Creative tools and everyday making. How can we make new personal fabrication devices such as 3D printers more accessible to novice users, hobbyists, and people with disabilites?
