A pervasivecomputing environment that minimizes distraction must be context aware, and a pervasive-computing system must know the user’s state to accommodate his or(More)
A new technology for manufacturing mechatronics is described. The technique is based on recursive masking and deposition of thermally sprayed materials. Using these methods, structures can be created that embed and interconnect electronic components, resulting in highly integrated mechatronic devices. A simple, electromechanical artifact was designed and(More)
