Once again it's dorkbot time in sunny Melbourne! Carrying on from last
month's successful one-man-show by Robert Henke, this month Florian 'Floyd'
Mueller will be joining us to share his research on "Exertion Interfaces"
(see below for more info). Everyone with an interest in doing strange things
with electricity is invited to come along and check out the presentation
and participate in lively discussion. Please join us, bring your friends,
drinks and nibblies of your choice. Doors are open from 4pm, the
presentation will begin at 4:30 sharp.


::: Exertion Interfaces :::
Florian 'Floyd' Mueller

Florian 'Floyd' Mueller is researching "Exertion Interfaces" at the
University of Melbourne. Exertion Interfaces are useful to create novel
computer-augmented sports experiences, in particular when networked.

A recent example is "Jogging over a Distance", which allows two remote
joggers to have a "jogging together" experience although being apart using
spatialized sound.

Floyd will describe this project and also detail the tech challenges,
including OQOs, Nike+, Suunto heart-rate monitors, audio spatialization,
VoIP, networking with Processing and mobile 3G network latency.
