Why here and now

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



The paper presents our vision in the process of creating new objects and things, based on reducing the estrangement of Internet content consumption by conceiving interaction modalities suitable for social activities occurring in the here-and-now, in real-time and real-place. These aspects should be incorporated in interactive artefacts not only for the contents consumption but also for editing and manipulating information. We present some projects and concepts that go in this direction, and among them we show the design solutions developed in our laboratory that aim to enhance the role of the physical location, social and cultural environment in affecting the contents and the way to interact with them. © 2009 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.
