Following Weiser’s vision of Ubiquitous computing, computers have moved from a Swiss knife model to a tool box model in the last few decades. Rather than a unique device for all activities, we tend to use particular devices dedicated to specific contexts. In this talk I will discuss evolutions of desktop interactive devices, and interaction paradigms. These evolutions leverage new kinds of input and output modalities to increase the interaction vocabulary.
Thomas Pietrzak is an associate in computer science at the University of Lille. His research interests are in the design and engineering of interaction techniques and devices. He was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto and Telecom ParisTech.
