By William Newman, Chris Dance, Alex Taylor, Stuart Taylor, Michael Taylor, Tony Aldhous
Issue Date:June 1999
pp. 647
We describe the design and evaluation of CamWorks, a system that employs a video camera as a means of supporting capture from paper sources during reading and writing. The user can view a live video image of the source document alongside the electronic doc...
Prototyping Connected Devices for the Internet of Things
Found in: Computer
By Steve Hodges,Stuart Taylor,Nicolas Villar,James Scott,Dominik Bial,Patrick Tobias Fischer
Issue Date:February 2013
pp. 26-34
Tools like Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer offer the ability to quickly prototype, test, and deploy connected devices, providing a key element that will accelerate our understanding of the challenges in realizing the Internet of Things vision.
Speculative devices for photo display
Found in: CHI '08 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '08)
By Abigail Durrant, Abigail Sellen, Alex S. Taylor, David Frohlich, Laurel Swan, Mike Molloy, Phil Gosset, Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:April 2008
pp. 49-54
In this paper, we describe three purposefully provocative, digital photo display technologies designed for home settings. The three devices have been built to provoke questions around how digital photographs might be seen and interacted with in novel ways....
Performance targets, models and innovation in interactive system design
Found in: Proceedings of the conference on Designing interactive systems: processes, practices, methods, and techniques (DIS '00)
By Alex S. Taylor, Christopher R. Dance, Stuart A. Taylor, William M. Newman
Issue Date:August 2000
pp. 381-387
This paper presents an approach to designing interactive systems that enables critical performance parameters to be identified and models of performance to be constructed. The methods described are intended to enable designers to improve the performance o...
Exploring physical prototyping techniques for functional devices using .NET gadgeteer
Found in: Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI '13)
By Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:February 2013
pp. 271-274
In this paper we present a number of different physical construction techniques for prototyping functional electronic devices. Some of these approaches are already well established whilst others are more novel; our aim is to briefly summarize some of the m...
Taking as an act of sharing
Found in: Proceedings of the ACM 2012 conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW '12)
By Helena M. Mentis, Paul Dunphy, Richard Harper, Sian E. Lindley, Stuart Taylor, Tim Regan
Issue Date:February 2012
pp. 1091-1100
We present findings from the deployment of a mobile application, Take and Give, which allows users to place image files in a virtual folder or 'Pocket' on a mobile phone. This content can be viewed by a set of 'Buddies', who can, if they wish, attempt to t...
A VJ centered exploration of expressive interaction
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '11)
By David Green, John McCarthy, Jonathan Hook, Patrick Olivier, Peter Wright, Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 1265-1274
This paper identifies key themes of expressive interaction for VJs. VJs are visual artists who use digital media to express themselves to an audience during a live audio-visual performance. Those designing for the expressive use of technology can gain insi...
Opening up the family archive
Found in: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work (CSCW '10)
By Abigail Sellen, David S. Kirk, Otmar Hilliges, Richard Banks, Shahram Izadi, Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:February 2010
pp. 261-270
The Family Archive device is an interactive multi-touch tabletop technology with integrated capture facility for the archiving of sentimental artefacts and memorabilia. It was developed as a technology probe to help us open up current family archiving prac...
A reconfigurable ferromagnetic input device
Found in: Proceedings of the 22nd annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology (UIST '09)
By Alex Butler, Jonathan Hook, Nicolas Villar, Shahram Izadi, Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 51-54
We present a novel hardware device based on ferromagnetic sensing, capable of detecting the presence, position and deformation of any ferrous object placed on or near its surface. These objects can include ball bearings, magnets, iron filings, and soft mal...
Glancephone: an exploration of human expression
Found in: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services (MobileHCI '09)
By Richard Harper, Stuart Taylor
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 1-10
In this paper, we describe the design and ethnographic study of a phone developed so as to allow people to glance at each other, rather than simply message or voice call. Glancephones work through having a form factor that allows them to be placed upright ...
Turning the tables: an interactive surface for vjing
