Discovery:

It may not be such a dog-eat-dog world after all, at least among puppies. A new study has found that young male dogs playing with female pups will often let the females win, even if the males have a physical advantage.

Male dogs sometimes place themselves in potentially disadvantageous positions that could make them more vulnerable to attack, and researchers suspect the opportunity to play may be more important to them than winning.

Such self-handicapping has been documented before in red-necked wallabies, squirrel monkeys, hamadryas baboons and even humans, all of which frequently take on defensive positions when playing with youngsters, in particular.

Interactivity Research & Explorations at CHI’13 in Paris, CFP

Interactivity is your chance to fully engage CHI attendees at a personal level by letting them see, touch, squeeze, hear or even smell your interactive visions for the future. Interactivity promotes and provokes discussion of the role of technology, and invites contributions from industry, research, the arts and design.

Interactivity Research is the high-visibility, high-impact forum of the Technical Program which allows you to present your hands-on demonstration in two sessions. This track is for the year’s most exciting research prototypes and demos. If you have a working prototype, device, or system we want to know about it. Getting people hands-on with your interface is often the best way to communicate what you have created. Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller, RMIT, Exertion Games Lab, Melbourne, Australia
Steve Benford, University of Nottingham, UK

Interactivity Explorations is about cultural applications and explorations of future technologies. If your work asks questions and inspires reflection on the role of technology in people’s lives, their dreams and imaginations we want to hear from you. We are looking for artworks, design experiences as well as inspirational technologies that the audience can engage with intellectually and imaginatively. The Explorations track moves beyond proof of concept prototypes to cultural applications and explorations. We invite submissions from artists, researchers, designers and industry: come share your vision of the future with the delegates at CHI. Danielle Wilde, RMIT University, Australia

Tech Leaders: Rafael Fajardo; creating socially conscious video games
by NBCLatino Staff
3:56 pm on 12/26/2012
This week on Tech Leaders — Rafael Fajardo, University of Denver professor, creator of socially conscious video games. Fajardo has pushed to include women and minorities into STEM fields by teaching how to create their own video games. He says teaching and making things are his passion and his games are a critique of the issues like immigration.
NBCLatino’s Adrian Carrasquillo has more on what makes Fajardo one of our tech leaders this year.
