Thijs Roumen is PhD student at the Human Computer Interaction chair at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. His main research focus is Mobile Fabrication, with a focus on engineering of hardware and developing methods to make the sharing and reusing of 3D models more portable.
Prof. Patrick Baudisch is full professor at the Human Computer Interaction chair of the Hasso Plattner Institute. His main interest is in the blending of computer science with the physical world we live in. On the one hand this relates to Digital Fabrication: how we can use computation to control the physical reality, and on the other hand Haptics for VR: how we can experience properties of the physical world while interacting in a virtual reality.
