On May 4th, 2022 SANDS member Alejandra Rodriguez Vega will be presenting our work A Study of Solar Cooking: Exploring Climate- Resilient Food Preparation and Opportunities for HCI at the international ACM conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2022).
We seek to go beyond the current options of 3D printed lithophanes and explore unique options of the medium.
We created an interactive system that unobtrusively tracks the freehand drawing process (movement and pressure of artist’s pencil) on a traditional easel.
Using off-the-shelf materials, we developed low-cost light-sensitive, temperature-responsive, and conductive screenprinting inks.
Our are exploring 3D prints to fabricate molds for culinary exploration. To determine what types of 3D designs and recipes work well to create customized, detailed dishes, we held a workshop with culinary enthusiasts.
This is a continuation of Melting Materials for Mold Making, where we describe some of our experiments to create molds of wax, chocolate, and jello using 3D
