Ingredients for a New Wave of Ubicomp Products
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Thomas Kubitza,Norman Pohl,Tilman Dingler,Stefan Schneegass,Christian Weichel,Albrecht Schmidt
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 5-8
The emergence of many new embedded computing platforms has lowered the hurdle for creating ubiquitous computing devices. Here, the authors highlight some of the newer platforms, communication technologies, sensors, actuators, and cloud-based development to...
Tools and methods for creating interactive artifacts
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI '14)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Daniela Petrelli, Nick Dulake, Norman Pohl, Thomas Kubitza, Tilman Dingler
Issue Date:February 2014
pp. 385-388
Many embedded platforms that support the creation of interactive smart objects have become available over the last years. Arduino, Raspberry Pi, electric imp, mbed, MSP430, and .NET Gadgeteer are examples of hardware platforms with very different propertie...
WebClip: a connector for ubiquitous physical input and output for touch screen devices
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM international joint conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing (UbiComp '13)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Norman Pohl, Thomas Kubitza, Tilman Dingler
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 387-390
It has become extremely easy for developers to build custom software for smartphone and tablet computers. However, it is still hard to extend those devices with external electronics, e.g. additional sensors and actuators. In the moment when external hardwa...
An interactive belt-worn badge with a retractable string-based input mechanism
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI '13)
By John Helmes, Nicolas Villar, Norman Pohl, Steve Hodges, Tim Paek
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 1465-1468
In this paper we explore a new type of wearable computing device, an interactive identity badge. An embedded LCD presents dynamic information to the wearer and interaction is facilitated by sensing movement of the retractable string which attaches the unit...
