Fascinated by innovations in wearable technology and driven by a passion for dance, undergraduate Emily Daub developed integrated, responsive lighting systems for costumes that expand the creative possibilities for performance dance.

With responsive wearables, Daub creates dance performances that are fun, expressive, active and entertaining experiences that tell relatable stories about personal relationships.

Daub received funding from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and worked on her project under the mentorship of Prof. Ben Shapiro, whose ATLAS research group, The Laboratory for Playful Computation, incubated Emily’s project.

Each year UROP provides funding to support hundreds of student-faculty partnerships for projects in all fields of study.  Explore opportunities at the UROP website.
