Our research explores new forms of technology-enhanced intervention for children with Intellectual Disability (ID) that exploits our Magic K-Room, an interactive multisensory smart space designed in cooperation with therapists and special educators at a local rehabilitation center. The Magic K-Room integrates smart objects, smart lights, and (immersive) multimedia contents. It also supports monitoring of brain-signals and automatic ambient adaptation, to dynamically personalize the smart space to the specific needs of each child. These features are enabled by a wearable device that automatically detects and interprets EEG signals.

Abstract

Our research explores new forms of technology-enhanced intervention for children with Intellectual Disability (ID) that exploits our Magic K-Room, an interactive multisensory smart space designed in cooperation with therapists and special educators at a local rehabilitation center. The Magic K-Room integrates smart objects, smart lights, and (immersive) multimedia contents. It also supports monitoring of brain-signals and automatic ambient adaptation, to dynamically personalize the smart space to the specific needs of each child. These features are enabled by a wearable device that automatically detects and interprets EEG signals.
