It is discussed how the availability of processing power and advanced sensing technology can enable a shift in HCI from explicit interaction, such as direct manipulation GUIs, towards a more implicit interaction based on situational context.
Requirements and design space for interactive public displays
The fundamentals for creating exciting public displays and multimedia experiences enabling new forms of engagement with digital content are discussed, and a taxonomy for interactive public display is concluded.
The drift table: designing for ludic engagement
The Drift Table is an electronic coffee table that displays slowly moving aerial photography controlled by the distribution of weight on its surface. It was designed to investigate our ideas about
Knowing the user's every move: user activity tracking for website usability evaluation and implicit interaction
This paper investigates how detailed tracking of user interaction can be monitored using standard web technologies to enable implicit interaction and to ease usability evaluation of web applications outside the lab.
Display Blindness: The Effect of Expectations on Attention towards Digital Signage
It is shown how audience expectations towards what is presented on public displays can correlate with their attention towards these displays and possible solutions to overcome this "Display Blindness" and increase audience attention towards public displays are proposed.
Ubiquitous computing - computing in context
This book aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
Large-scale assessment of mobile notifications
This paper presents the first large-scale analysis of mobile notifications with a focus on users' subjective perceptions, and derives a holistic picture of notifications on mobile phones by collecting close to 200 million notifications from more than 40,000 users.
Advanced Interaction in Context
A layered real-time architecture for this kind of context-aware adaptation based on redundant collections of low-level sensors, which has shown that it is feasible to recognize contexts using sensors and that context information can be used to create new interaction metaphors.
Location-based crowdsourcing: extending crowdsourcing to the real world
Overall the findings show that integrating tasks in the physical world is useful and feasible and issues that should be considered during designing mobile crowdsourcing applications are discussed.
