SATURNO by Boram Noh has been accepted to ACM SIGCHI 2016 Video Showcase, San Jose, USA. The acceptance rate was 24%. Also, it was first visiting to CHI as IPD Lab, and the work is from Boram's Bachelor graduation project. Only thirteen videos were accepted, and many of them were from MIT, Microsoft and other top-class research institutions.

Description: SATURNO is a shadow-pushing lamp that helps users to focus more on tasks at the desk environment. Hanged from the ceiling, the wide oval ring-shaped SATURNO detects the location information of the user’s hand from infrared proximity sensors. When the user simply reach out the hand to the position that s/he wants to brighten up to diminish interrupting shadows, it gives more light to the part detected and reduces other lights that makes irritating shadows, which looks like a pushing shadows. The gentle un-touching interaction of managing the brightness of each lights and the overall shape design of SATURNO can support users’ concentration, especially delicate working like drawing or taking notes.
