Changing the Human Experience

SIGGRAPH 2018 showcases emerging technologies that are exponentially expanding our human experience. The internet of things, the quantitative self, and immersive technologies have matured, and the new data systems that support these innovations make way for more invention and interconnectedness.

A variety of new research at SIGGRAPH 2018 will be showcased, including work focused on personal vicissitude; new products and systems to surround us in comfort and function; and new technologies designed to change the way we will approach sports, games and active watching.

DescriptionAutofocals is a hardware and software solution for presbyopes (those with an age-related loss of accommodation) that externally mimics the natural accommodation response. By combining data from eye trackers and a depth sensor and then automatically driving focus-tunable lenses, users can refocus by simply looking around.
