As the vision of ubiquitous computing becomes reality, there is a possibility for user interfaces that follow the user through the physical world by jumping between local display devices. This paper presents previous attempts at this functionality and identifies their limitations. Justified by these limitations, we then present our novel method that uses new features of web-based technology. This work has been recently developed and deployed as part of a joint European ATRACO project in our purpose built iSpace living lab.
