Joyride is a team at the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) collaborating with researchers in the fields of human-computer interaction, game innovation, and disability studies to create and host ChairJam. ChairJam is a three-day Game Jam/ Hardware Hackathon to create interactive experiences which highlight a sense of joy around wheelchair use. Instead of focusing solely on the practical and traditional uses for wheelchairs, this project seeks to explore their design and creative possibilities from a playful perspective. What delightful experiences are possible when we look past the ordinary?


Core to the Joyride team is the “Nothing About Us Without Us” philosophy. Rather than designing for the wheelchair community, we would like to design with the wheelchair community. Individuals who use wheelchairs are part of the event’s organization, and will be part of the process from the planning stage through to the execution of the event as consultants and participants. 


Our project collaborators are the organizers of ChairJam: 

• Game Designer Prof. Heather Kelley of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center 

• Assistant Professor Dr. Patrick Carrington of CMU’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute

• Associate Prof. of Games Theresa Devine from Arizona State University
