Our Mission


The HCI Engineering Group (HCIE) at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory works at the intersection of Human Computer Interaction and Personal Fabrication Tools. Our long-term vision is that in the future anybody will be able to create anything anywhere anytime. Working towards this goal, we build novel hardware and software systems that advance personal fabrication technologies. The group is led by Prof. Stefanie Mueller.
