The event aims to bring together researchers from various fields in order to address the following three questions:
- Are there rigorous techniques that can characterise the subjective experience of using sensory augmentation technology?
- How can empirical experiments with sensory augmentation devices be used to further philosophical and psychological enquiry into cognition and perception?
- What technologies are available for building sensory augmentation devices?
I will also be helping to run a technical workshop on constructing your own sensory augmentation device using my favourite open-source platform, the Arduino
This event is free to attend though you must follow the participation instructions on the e-sense project page.
