Human-computer interaction is multidisciplinary, drawing paradigms and techniques from both the natural sciences and the design disciplines. HCI cannot be considered a pure natural science because it studies the interaction between people and artificially-created artifacts, rather than naturally-occurring phenomena, which violates several basic assumptions(More)
This paper describes our exploration of a design space for an augmented reality prototype. We began by observing air traffic controllers and their interactions with paper flight strips. We then worked with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and controllers over a period of a year to brainstorm and prototype ideas for enhancing paper flight strips, We(More)
Augmented Reality offers a new paradigm for interacting with computers, linking familiar, physical objects to powerful computer networks. Although still in its infancy, the field is expanding rapidly, due to a wealth of new materials and technologies and a shift away from conventional notions about human-computer interaction. The increasing power and(More)
A sense of ‘we-ness’ – enacted through collective identity and culture – is both crucial in online, remote contexts, and particularly difficult to develop in such settings. Using Wittgenstein’s concept of language games, we examine how participants of two online forums construct collective identity and culture through their discursive practices. We suggest(More)
This tutorial is designed for HCI designers and researchers interested in learning specific techniques for using video to support a range of participatory design activities. Based on a combination of lectures, video demonstrations and hands-on exercises, the tutorial will give participants practical experience using video to observe users in laboratory and(More)
Purpose – To explore the relevance of Goffman’s theatrical metaphor to describe video-mediated interactions. Design/methodology/approach – Grounded in four waves of observational data of MBA students interacting by videoconference in the context of a distributed course between Europe and Asia, with the students working in virtual teams on a consulting(More)
