Generation Pulse

GenerationPulse is a social networking website inspired by and inspiring social justice. More than a website, we are a not-for-profit organization implementing social justice projects of our own like Postcards for Peace. Additionally, because of our affiliation with Boston College there is also an adjacent research project investigating the effectiveness of both our website and related psychosocial interventions.

The Data Commons Project

Our goal is to develop a democratically controlled, accurate, comprehensive, publicly searchable and updatable database of cooperative economic initiatives in North America. Rather than building just another website, we're experimenting with doing so in a (de-geekified) version of how programmers develop the open-source Linux code.

GelSight

GelSight is a novel device that can be used as a 2.5D “scanner” for acquiring surface texture and shape. It consists of a slab of clear elastomer covered with a reflective skin. When an object presses on the skin, the skin distorts to take on the shape of the object’s surface. When viewed from behind (through the elastomer slab), the skin appears as a relief replica of the surface. The surface geometry of the object can then be estimated using photometric stereo techniques. There is no problem dealing with transparent or specular materials because the skin supplies its own BRDF.
