Hackerspace and Wearable Tech in Terp Magazine

Jon Froehlich’s Hackerspace, located in HCIL, is the subject of a photo spread on Terp Magazine online. The photographs capture the camaraderie and excitement that takes place in hacker and makerspaces; they also capture the innovative projects that Froehlich undertakes with his graduate and undergraduate students.

One of Froehlich’s students, Leyla Nooroz, currently a PhD student in the iSchool, is working on wearable technology that is also currently featured in Terp Magazine as well. In her photograph which starts the article, she wears a project she developed—a t-shirt within moving interactive parts—to instruct students about anatomy and physiology. Nooroz holds a BS in Computer Science from UMD as well as an MS in Human Computer Interaction from the iSchool.
