  • Open University Pervasive Interaction Lab tour

    Some fascinating research came under the microscope last month as senior reporter Natasha Lomas took a tour of the Open University's Pervasive Interaction Lab, which explores human computer interaction and how technology can shape and influence behaviour.

    Pictured above is one of its projects called MusicJacket - which uses motion sensors and vibrotactile feedback to help a violin student adopt the correct posture and bow motion.

    To learn more of the lab's research projects, see Can tech change your behaviour? The Open University investigates.
