Sunday Speaker at Marlborough College Malaysia

Adrian David Cheok, who is setting up a new research lab in Iskandar, treated the boarders to an excellent Sunday morning talk. He spoke about research in human-computer interfaces and developing new types of communication environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell. One of the innovations was clothing that could reproduce a human hug, which could be sent remotely. Gary Tan and Syafiqah Amir Hamzah volunteered to describe their experience when smells were directed to a mobile phone, and Marielle Lee put herself forward bravely to try the taste test sent by computer. The ramifications for the future enthralled the pupils.
