We present the groundwork for Tiles: an inventor toolbox to support the development of interactive objects by non-experts. Tiles is composed by (i) a set of physical input/output primitives to describe interaction styles with technology-augmented objects, (ii) extensible hardware modules easily embeddable in everyday things that implement the primitives,(More)
Pervasive information visualization and interaction are fundamental tools to support learning in smart cities (SCL), for example to promote sustainable behaviours and social interaction. Building on a review of existing work, we identify the main limitations of traditional approaches based on large displays and smart-phones apps, first from a technological(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) offers new opportunities to invent technology-augmented things that are more useful, efficient or playful than their ordinary selves, yet only a few tools currently support ideation for the IoT. In this paper we present Tiles Cards, a set of 110 design cards and a workshop technique to involve non-experts in quick idea(More)
