Body, Movement, Gestures & Tactility in Interaction with Mobile Devices
2011 (English)In: Mobile HCI, Stockholm, Sweden, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
In the search for novel and more expressive interaction techniques for mobile devices, bodily aspects such as movement, gesture, and touch based interfaces are prominent. For instance, touch-screen gestures have found widespread application in mobile device interfaces while bodily gestures involving device movement are successfully applied in gaming scenarios. Other modalities, like pressure, free-hand and on body interaction are increasingly being explored in research systems in mobile settings. This is becoming possible through current developments that have made sensing and actuating technologies cheaper and more easily integrated in mobile and handheld devices. The turn towards experiential, embodied, enacted perspectives on cognition and action has also contributed to a shift in what aspects of interaction focus upon in interaction design. This has lead to HCI-researchers to explore now only how the whole human body can be taken into account in design, but also to explore new domains of application for instance in leisure, entertainment and public urban environments.
