The b-Reactable is a collaborative music system that combines implicit interaction based on physiology sensors (EEG and heart rate) and explicit interaction based on the Reactable, a tabletop interface for real-time music performance. This multimodal system displays brain and body signals through sound, graphics and physical objects (physiopucks) which can be manipulated by physiology emitters and their partners.
This work is part of my PhD project on Physiology-driven Tangible Objects for Music Collaboration in Multimodal Tabletop Interfaces.
b-Reactable is part of the Teclepathy Project: Mechanisms of unconscious communication in collaborative work environments (mtg.upf.edu/research/interaction/projects?p=Teclepathy)
