Undergraduate Summer Research in NxR

Join the NxR lab this summer! The Surface Haptics group is looking for talented students to work on an NSF funded research project. Tell us you’re interested at http://nxr.northwestern.edu/summer2013

The Surface Haptics group makes it possible to feel things on touchscreens. We are a multidisciplinary lab, exploring everything from basic physical science questions like “How do we use vibrations or electricity to apply force to a fingertip?” to user-centered design questions like “How might we design a haptic interface so that drivers can keep their eyes on the road while using it?” Answering these questions requires a range of skills from building devices and electronics to computer programming and interface design. While you don’t need to know it all coming in, but you will probably touch on it all before you leave. Undergraduate students with a background in Design,  EECS,  Mechanical Engineering, or Industrial Engineering are all welcome. Two paid positions are available. Submit examples of past work by Friday March 15th, decisions before spring break. http://nxr.northwestern.edu/summer2013
