The Robotic Feral Public Authoring (RFPA) project seeks to combine low-cost robotics with geo-annotation in an innovative way for a novel approach to galvanising social activism on a local level around environmental issues. Adapting commercially available toy robots and remotely controlled vehicles with a variety of sensors and uploading the readings to a(More)
Many of the essays in this volume bear witness to the powerful alchemy of personal cultural production and communication combined with large-scale networks of digital distribution and archiving. While the implications of peer-to-peer exchange for the media industries have attracted considerable public attention, there has been much less consideration of how(More)
EXTENDEDABSTRACT This proposed panel addresses the representation of the public in the information age. For the most part, new technologies delivered by corporate interests envision the 'public' as markets, separated into demographic age groups, income brackets and individual consumption behaviors. In the information age, public representation is synonymous(More)
The present workshop was particularly well timed. We have just completed the first year of a new graduate-level course emphasizing product design, business development, and team process. In this course we implemented and tested many of the published ideas of the engineering design community 1. We report on the results of the course, our experiences and the(More)
Noise level in public spaces sometimes makes imposible to focus on particular sound information. In other cases, such focus is needed even when environmental sound information is also important. In this paper, we describe the use of bone vibration as an applicable technology in both public and private interfaces, when environment sound information or(More)
Can new interfaces contribute to social and environmental improvement? For all the care, wit and brilliance that UIST innovations can contribute, can they actually make things better - better in the sense of public good - not merely lead to easier to use or more efficient consumer goods? This talk will explore the impact of interface technology on society(More)
The Robotic Feral Public Authoring (RFPA) project seeks to combine low-cost toy robotics with geo-annotation to create a novel public authoring approach around environmental issues. Adapting commodity toy robots and remotely controlled toy cars with a variety of sensors and uploading the readings on a spatial annotation database for visualisation, we aim to(More)
Reimagining and redesigning our relationship to natural systems to improve human and environmental health, increase biodiversity, build soil, and improve air and water quality is the Space Race of the 21st Century; i.e. the most complex systems design challenge we face, and one that current and emerging interactive technologies provide the opportunity to(More)
