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...
Interaction techniques for creating and exchanging content with public displays
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI '13)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Alireza Sahami Shirazi, Florian Alt, Thomas Kubitza
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 1709-1718
Falling hardware prices and ever more displays being connected to the Internet will lead to large public display networks, potentially forming a novel communication medium. We envision that such networks are not restricted to display owners and advertisers...
Designing application stores for public display networks
Found in: Proceedings of the 2012 International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (PerDis '12)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Nigel Davies, Sarah Clinch, Thomas Kubitza
Issue Date:June 2012
pp. 1-6
Current public display systems are often ignored by passersby. We believe that increasing the level of engagement requires substantial innovation for the content shown -- and that this in turn requires opening up displays to new forms of applications and c...
