In #Physionetic-Interactions, our goal is to understand and leverage people's physiological state to redefine their connections with cybernetic avatars. 'Physio-' refers to understanding a user's physiology to deduce their cognitive, behavioral and psychological state. '-netic' refers to the different form factors of avatars, whether humanoid, anthropomorphic, physical or in a mixed reality space.

Join us as we explore the future possibilities of interaction design and immersive experiences.
We strive to augment our everyday cognition through new social interactions, whether alone or in the presence of others.
Using immersive XR technology, we open new doors to experiencing empathy, and create our own embodied experiences.
Through assistive design, technology can help us better understand ourselves, and each other, to promote healthier day-to-day routines.
