Printed embedded data graphical user interfaces (PEDGUIs) generalize the interaction domain to images and objects to enable interaction with passive objects and active displays throughout user environ-ments. Embedded data helps establish the selection location, gesture, and identity or context of the chosen substrate and links to other resources.

A key element for PEDGUI systems is imprinting machine-readable encoding and elec-tronic capture of images containing the embedded data for machine interpretation of user interaction.

Work at Xerox focuses on developing embedded data technology that provides substantial data capacity and local and global spatial address capability with good aesthetics and graphical integration with line art, text, and pictorial documents in color or black and white.

Embedded data technology, user-interface research, and emerging commercial developments provide a substantial foundation for novel applications inviting widespread practical use.
