KINGSTON, ON One of the world's top conferences in human-computer interaction, TEI 2012, is taking place at Queen's University. Researchers from around the world are coming to Kingston to present the latest technology through talks, exhibits and demonstrations.

Some of the technology on display includes: a two-sided flexible TV screen that can be folded like paper; socially networked yoga mats; a glove for deaf-blind people that translates the hand-touch alphabet Lorm (a common form of communication used by deaf-blind people) into text; and a wearable system of sensors designed to improve posture among office workers by rewarding regular body movement with access to a video game during the workday.

The event is being organized by the Queen's Human Media Lab.
