Ubiquitous computing researchers are increasingly turning to sensor-enabled " living laboratories " for the study of people and technologies in settings more natural than a typical laboratory. We describe the design and operation of the PlaceLab, a new live-in laboratory for the study of ubiquitous technologies in home settings. Volunteer research(More)
We explore the use of ubiquitous sensing in the home for context-sensitive microlearning. To assess how users would respond to frequent and brief learning interactions tied to context, a sensor-triggered mobile phone application was developed, with foreign language vocabulary as the learning domain. A married couple used the system in a home environment,(More)
In this paper, we introduce some of the tools that the MIT House_n Consortium has built for ubiquitous computing research. We describe the design and operation of the PlaceLab, a new live-in laboratory for the study of ubiquitous technologies in home settings. Volunteer research participants individually live in the PlaceLab for days or weeks at a time,(More)
