Printing and Fabrication

July–Sept. 2014

Pervasive Computing magazine cover

A revolution is occurring in terms of how pervasive computing hardware is designed, prototyped, and manufactured. A broad set of researchers and users now have access to a host of digital fabrication tools and techniques that empower them to create new devices and realize new concepts more quickly, cheaply, and easily. This special issue brings together four articles that describe recent research in this space of printing and fabrication for pervasive computing. Read article »

Building Functional Prototypes Using Conductive Inkjet Printing

Building Functional Prototypes Using Conductive Inkjet Printing

Not only can you use a consumer-grade inkjet printer to create conductive circuits, but in this article, the authors explain the strengths and weaknesses of the approach across a range of pervasive computing applications. Read full article »

Cognition-Aware Computing

Cognition-Aware Computing

Despite significant advances in context sensing and inference, context-aware computing still doesn't implement a holistic view of all covert aspects of the user state. However, visual behavior and brain activity are two promising sensing modalities for assessing the cognitive context and thus the development of cognition-aware computing systems.
