Since Jocelyn’s time at Brandeis, NYU, and the MIT Media Lab, she has become one of the first innovators in the application of wearable biometric technology to real-time graphical visualizations. Some of her past projects include:

ULTRAESTHESIA, 2016 - Present

An installation using virtual reality and biosensors to create an experience of synesthesia and alien senses (with Richard Cytowic and Marcos Lutyens).

 
 

 

PROJECT DECADE, 2016 - Present  

A collaboration with NYU and the NYC Media Lab, and sponsored by Verizon, to develop an interactive abstract virtual-reality experience that uses a wireless version of the biometric ring, with implications for education and wellness.

 
 

 

A biometric ring sensor, 2015 - Present

A skin conductance ring using the ring sensors as electrodes was deployed last year in HI*SEAS, a NASA project simulating a long-term mission to Mars.  The ring was used to measure astronauts' activity during virtual reality experiments nature and other images of home on earth.

 
 

Commissioned performances, 2014-2015

A custom wrist-worn wearable was created for both the Future of Storytelling 2014 and a religious light celebration that allowed a performer to interact with an audience by building excitement and watching it visually through arousal sensors. 

 
 

TRANS*FORM, driven by the CONDUCTOR’S JACKET, 1998, 2011

One of the 150 iconic objects in the MIT150 Exhibition at the MIT Museum, TRANS*FORM was an abstract graphical projection of the output from the 12 biosensors in a jacket worn by Keith Lockhart of the Boston Pops Orchestra during a performance.

 
 

The GALVACTIVATOR, 1998

A glove that measured skin conductance and mapped it to a glowing light, the Galvactivator was the first patented wearable, washable biosensor. Jocelyn authored the patent, along with Dr. Rosalind Picard, Jonny Farringdon and Nancy Tilbury. Two thousand of these were made for an audience at MIT's Kresge Hall. It was a seminal early work in manufacturing of wearables.
