About MEI Lab
Multimodal and Embodied Interaction (MEI) Laboratory is a Human-Computer-Interaction research group in the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong.
MEI, 美 in Chinese, means beautiful and elegant. In MEI lab, we aim to create, innovate, and enhance the beauty in human-computer interaction through multimodal and emobided interfaces.
While the computer interfaces today are mainly visual and auditory, in MEI, we envision a “touchable” future for our society. Our research interests include tangible user interfaces, wearable user interfaces, mobile user interfaces, virtual and augmented reality, and the application of these interfaces/technologies in education, entertainment, accessibility, and so on.
Please refer to our projects and publications page for more details.
