Hi, I am Rohit Vairamohan. I design simple, intuitive user experiences and engaging interactions.

Post WIMP Ixn Design

This section of my portfolio contains projects where I have designed for interactions that are just not restricted with WIMP (Windows, Icons, Menus and Pointers). I worked on three major areas in the world of post WIMP interaction design, namely acoustic tracking, inertial tracking and motion tracking. I was trying to use existing techniques to interact with a certain interface in a whole new manner.

KinectDraw
KinectDraw is an interactive tool that uses Kinect for people to interact with shapes on a 2D screen. The user is able to change the look, feel and the shape of the object he makes on the screen. It uses the location of his right hand on the x-y plane to mark a pointer on the screen and subsequently adjust the coordinates of the edges of the object that the user is interacting with. It is a setup that focuses more towards changing the shape of the object on screen. The coordinate system is relative to the user’s body position.

MuTube
‘MuTube’,is a tube with the abilities of a Gyroscope and an Accelerometer in it, to help control music on any device.
For demonstration purposes an iPod is used as the Gyroscope and Accelerometer. This is a simple demonstration of how to use the various degrees of freedom with respect to the object in concern to control other interactions.

Sweet Spot Detection
In a sport like cricket in which you have to strike the ball with a bat, it is very important to have the ball hit the bat at the right place. Also as far as cricket is concerned this spot falls below the bat maker’s sticker. This project helps us understand how to give real-time feedback to the batsman when he is hitting the ball as to whether the ball hit the sweet spot or not. I use acoustic tracking to help me in this venture.
