Although mobile services can be used ubiquitously, their employment and the interaction with them are still restricted by the constraints of mobile devices. In order to facilitate and leverage mobile interaction with services, we present a generic framework that combines Semantic Web Service technology and Physical Mobile Interaction. This interaction(More)
Mobile devices are more and more used for mobile interactions with things, places and people in the real world. However, so far no studies have discussed which interaction techniques are preferred by users in different contexts. This paper presents an experimental comparison of four different physical mobile interaction techniques: touching, pointing,(More)
In current authoring tools for location-aware applications the designer typically places trigger zones onto a map of the target environment and associates these with events and media assets. However, studies of deployed experiences have shown that the characteristics of the usually invisible ubiquitous computing infrastructure, especially limited coverage(More)
Large public displays have become pervasive in our everyday lives, but up to now, they are mostly information screens without any interaction possibilities. Users tend to forget what they saw relatively fast after leaving such a display. In this paper, we present a new interaction technique for transferring information from a public display onto a personal(More)
Museums often use mobile devices and applications to let visitors explore their exhibits and interact with them in order to make the user experience more immersive and enjoyable. This paper presents a mobile museum guide based on the physical interaction with a dynamic NFC-display, consisting of a grid of NFC-tags and a projected GUI. Visitors can browse(More)
Mobile devices can take advantage of physical interaction with their environment and its objects to compensate their constrained input and output capabilities. For that purpose, dynamic NFC-displays combine the physical interaction with NFC-tagged user interfaces and the output capabilities of public displays. We have adopted this technology for the(More)
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology for mobile, touch-based interaction with tagged objects that can serve as physical user interfaces (UI). Dynamic NFC-displays use a grid of NFC-tags as a physical UI and combine it with a projected application UI to enable direct interactions between mobile devices and large screens. In this paper, we explore(More)
The advancement of Ubicomp technologies leverages mobile interaction with physical objects and facilitates ubiquitous access to information and services. This provides new opportunities for mobile interaction with the real world, but also creates new challenges regarding the complexity of mobile applications , their interaction design and usability.
