2. Imagine 10,000 years from now What would a team of Martian paleantologists and archeologists deduce about our species when encountering the remnants of our information society, i.e., a desktop computer? 3. Homo Desktopus Koert van Mensvoort 4. Major trends New sensing possibilities: moving from keyboard/mouse to gesture-controlled interfaces, multitouch surfaces, face recognition, activity sensing, context sensing, biometrics, physiological measures Diversifying physical interfaces: media form factors ranging from small, wearable displays (mobile computing), to large-scale ambient and immersive 3D environments Shift in application purpose: From productivity-oriented workplace technologies where performance is a key objective, to applications for everyday life, that aim for user experiences through leisure, play, culture and art/ Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences 5. Marc Weiser, 1991The most profound technologies are those thatdisappear. They weave themselves into thefabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it. 6. Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs)/ Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences 31-8-2012 Page 7 7. Marble answering machine Durell Bishop, RCA 8. MITs IO Brush Ryokai, Marti and Ishii, MIT 9. Disneys Touch/ Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences 10. Gesture-based Interaction Tom Cruise in Minority Report 11. A magazine is an iPad that does not work/ Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences 12. Communication at a distance Seeing Hearing 13. Touch at a distance: Design explorations 14. What technologies are being used? Tactile displays 15. Does mediated touch work at all? Potential limitation Tactile displays do not yetconvey the richness of humantouch Can a mediated touchusing simple electro-mechanical actuators yieldsimilar effects as a realhuman touch? 16. Whats happening here? 17. Midas Touch A brief touch on the arm orshoulder can: Increase compliance to a request Increase pro-social behavior(e.g., helping behavior) Proven effective in F2F settings: Get on a bus for free Have someone hold on to your excitabledog while you go shopping Get better tips when working as awaitress Get people to help you if you dropsomething (disks, papers, pens, ...) 18. The dropping of items paradigm 19. Mediated Touch via tactile vest 20. Mediated Midas TouchCondition helpingTouch 76.6%No Touch 50%(p = 0.03; one-sided Fisher exact test) 21. It seems to work 22. Conclusion Engaging the body in HCI broadens the human-machine interaction bandwidth Creating more natural interactions Creating more engaging experiences We need a combination of human-oriented and engineering sciences to help us move forward Exciting time to be an engineer, a psychologist, or an interaction designer!/ Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences 23.
