Traditional desktop computers have a tendency to drag users towards the desk and away from the object of their work. Researchers working within fields covered by the term ‘tangible computing’ are trying to find ways to integrate computer technology in a more radical way and minimise the gravitation to a desk. In this paper, we argue for different(More)

The traditional desktop computer have a tendency to drag users to the desk, away from their object of work. Within fields covered by the term tangible computing, researchers try to find ways to integrate computer technology in a more radical way, and minimising the desk gravitation. In this paper we argue for different interactional features that are(More)
This paper presents an analysis of an experimental setting where video-mediated communication between a nurse and a patient was used. The focus of the analysis is on the communication between the nurse and the patient and the role of the video conference system being used. The emphasis is on how video technology can support interpersonal communication, and(More)
Tagging physical objects to get a link from the physical world into some kind of technology has been done for a long time. The most commonly known is probably the barcodes that is used in five billion scans every day. During a project at Xerox Research Centre Europe in Cambridge, we came across the concept of Glow Tags. It is partly an expansion of the more(More)
