The Intimate Machine

by Carson Reynolds

Last spring Alan Alda and the folks of Scientific American Frontiers descended upon our lab and filmed some of our work. He spent a bit of time with my group. A half a year later PBS aired the actual show, entitled “The Intimate Machine.” Ashish, Selena, and myself are briefly featured in a segmented called “Getting to Know Us.” One shot shows an older revision of the pressure sensitive mouse with a stripchart interface.
