Flanked by tables where area colleges touted graduate programs and technology being built in their labs, George Mason University doctoral student Cody Narber took the time to construct a digital peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He laid out the bread, spun lids off the Jif and Smuckers jars, then spread out the fixings — all using a haptic device and computer software that replicates the everyday task. Designed to mimic the physical dynamics of the process, such as weight, Narber hopes the software and similar programs he developed will one day help patients to rehabilitate fine motor and cognitive skills.
