We present EyePliances: appliances and devices that detect and respond to human visual attention using eye contact sensors. EyePliances receive implicit input from users, in the form of eye gaze, and respond by opening communication channels. By allowing devices to recognize the attentional cues people already provide, requests for explicit input from users(More)
We present ECSGlasses: wearable eye contact sensing glasses that detect human eye contact. ECSGlasses report eye contact to digital devices, appliances and EyePliances in the user's <i>attention space</i>. Devices use this attentional cue to engage in a more sociable process of turn taking with users. This has the potential to reduce inappropriate(More)
As ubiquitous computing becomes more prevalent, greater consideration will have to be taken on how devices interrupt us and vie for our attention. This paper describes Auramirror, an interactive art piece that raises questions of how computers use our attention. By measuring attention and visualizing the results for the audience in real-time, Auramirror(More)
We present AuraMirror, a system that visualizes virtual windows of attention: the commodity of visual attention people exchange during interactions in small groups. AuraMirror acts as a dynamic 'painting' that passively gathers and displays attentional data by superimposing auras over each viewer's head in a real time video mirror.
