—We describe MusicJacket, a wearable system to support the teaching of good posture and bowing technique to novice violin players. The system uses an inertial motion capture system to track, in real-time: i) whether the player is holding the violin correctly; and ii) the player's bowing action and whether it deviates from a target trajectory. We provide the(More)
Vibrotactile feedback offers much potential for facilitating and accelerating how people learn sensory-motor skills that typically take hundreds of hours to learn, such as learning to play a musical instrument, skiing or swimming. However, there is little evidence of this benefit materializing outside of research lab settings. We describe the findings of an(More)
The domestic use of tracking technology with pets is on the rise, yet is under-researched. We investigate how tracking practices reconfigure human-dog relationships changing both humans and dogs. We question the sensemaking mechanisms by which both humans and dogs engage in context-based meaningful exchanges via the technology's mediation. We show how an(More)
We describe the insights and challenges offered by researcher participation in in-the-wild studies through the comparison of two prototype evaluations with varying levels of researcher participation. By reflecting on these studies we expose different facets of the researcher's role when interacting with participants in in-the-wild studies. We also(More)
Domestic microgeneration is the onsite generation of low- and zero-carbon heat and electricity by private households to meet their own needs. In this paper we explore how an everyday household routine -- that of doing laundry -- can be augmented by digital technologies to help households with photovoltaic solar energy generation to make better use of(More)
This paper shows how aspects can be successfully employed in the support of system evolution. The context is a case study on migrating a legacy client-server application to overcome the security problems associated with 'message tampering' attacks. The focus is on authorization issues in which aspects are used to add a security mechanism based on digital(More)
Many people with Diabetes live with the continuous threat of hypoglycemic attacks and the danger of going into coma. Diabetes Alert Dogs are trained to detect the onset of an attack before the condition of the human handler they are paired with deteriorates, giving them time to take action. We investigated requirements for designing an alarm system allowing(More)
Pair Programming (PP) requires close collaboration and mutual engagement. Most existing empirical studies of PP do not focus on developers’ behaviour during PP sessions, and focus instead on the effects of PP such as productivity. However, disengagement, where a developer is not focusing on solving the task or understanding the problem and allows(More)
—We describe the ongoing development of a system to support the teaching of good posture and bowing technique to novice violin players. Using an inertial motion capture system we can track in real-time: i) a player's bowing action (and measure how it deviates from a target trajectory); ii) whether the player is holding their violin correctly. We detail some(More)
