We present SensaBubble, a <i>chrono-sensory</i> mid-air display system that generates scented bubbles to deliver information to the user via a number of sensory modalities. The system reliably produces single bubbles of specific sizes along a directed path. Each bubble produced by SensaBubble is filled with fog containing a scent relevant to the… (More)
In this paper we discuss the concept of style, focusing in particular on methods of designing new instruments that facilitate the cultivation and recognition of style. We distinguish between style and structure of an interaction and discuss the significance of this formulation within the context of NIME. Two workshops that were conducted to explore style in… (More)
This paper proposes that the physicality of an instrument be considered an important aspect in the design of new interfaces for musical expression. The use of Laban's theory of effort in the design of new effortful interfaces, in particular looking at effort-space modulation, is investigated, and a platform for effortful interface development (named the… (More)
This paper presents the concept of Resonant Bits, an interaction technique for encouraging engaging, slow and skilful interaction with tangible, mobile and ubiquitous devices. The technique is based on the resonant excitation of harmonic oscillators and allows the exploration of a number of novel types of tangible interaction including: ideomotor control,… (More)
An explosion in the availability of online records has led to surging interest in genealogy. In this paper we explore the present state of genealogical practice, with a particular focus on how the process of research is recorded and later accessed by other researchers. We then present our response, ChronoTape, a novel tangible interface for supporting… (More)
Resonant Bits proposes giving digital information resonant dynamic properties, requiring skill and concerted e↵ort for interaction. This paper applies resonant interaction to musical control, exploring musical instruments that are controlled through both purposeful and subconscious resonance. We detail three exploratory prototypes, the first two… (More)
This paper summarises the author's PhD research on the representation and control of time in tangible user interfaces. The aim of the research is to create a theoretical framework that can aid the design of new temporal-media tangible interfaces.
The aim of this project is to prove that the addition of a controllable damper to a haptic interface will allow improved control through the modulation of stiffness, thus improving the haptic experience. This concept is proven through the design, construction and testing of a haptic interface tailored to 'display' a virtual drum kit.
This paper introduces FugaciousFilm, a soap film based touch display, as a platform for Attentive Interaction that encourages the user to be highly focused throughout the use of the interface. Previous work on ephemeral user interfaces has primarily focused on the development of ambient and peripheral displays. In contrast, FugaciousFilm is an ephemeral… (More)
