Technologies for attention regulation and mindfulness practices

Speaker:  Corina Sas – Lancaster, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


The last decade has witnessed a significant growth of HCI interest in mindfulness technologies, with a focus on audio-visual interfaces for guided or interactive mindfulness support, particularly for sitting meditation. In contrast, technologies such as haptic ones or other mindfulness practices involving bodily movement, have received however limited attention. This talk will describe design exemplars of mindfulness technologies to support open and focused attention through both sitting and movement-based meditation. It also focuses on the exploration of bodily experienced during different meditation practices, and  the value of interoceptive interaction. The talk will also highlight novel design implications to inform the more sensitive design of future mindfulness technologies.
