"The Input Research Group (IRG) is a group of faculty, staff and students at the University of Toronto investigating human input to computer systems. The group was started in September 1989, and is primarily concerned with what has been called "haptic" input: input that involves physical contact (such as by the hand or foot). As such, it is not involved in speech input, for example."
"The University of Toronto's Dynamic Graphics Project (DGP) is an inter-disciplinary research laboratory. The lab's mission is advanced research and graduate instruction; its theme is the enhancement of human creativity through advances in human-computer interaction, user interface design, and interactive computer graphics."
