April 1, 2013 — Mark Sivak (left), assis­tant aca­d­emic spe­cialist in game design, demon­strates the ATLAS smart glove to Ryan Stewart (right), third-​​year stu­dent, during the Pop Up Lab event. The ATLAS is a low cost bimanual glove system for in-​​home motor reha­bil­i­ta­tion post stroke. The system relies on low-​​cost sen­sors and micro­con­trollers to com­mu­ni­cate accu­rate hand data to the play games and increase moti­va­tion for reha­bil­i­ta­tion exer­cises. During the fourth Pop Up Lab event, CAMD and CCIS inter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams gave inter­ac­tive demos of projects that use playable media to inspire, engage, and make a difference.
