introduction
Introduction
  • Phidget <-> Widget

Physical UI <-> GUI

  • Abstract and package I/O devices
    • Hiding implementation and construction details, and exposing functionality through a well-defined API
motivation
Motivation
  • Difficulty of developing and combining physical devices and interfacing them to conventional programming languages.
    • Hard to build unless background in electronics
    • Commercially available devices have no API
    • Developers may not have devices available at early stages of their programming effort
project videos
Project Videos
  • HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) course
  • Videos(http://grouplab.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/phidgets/gallery/)
    • Flower in Bloom
    • Waterfall Harp
    • Nerf Email
    • MSN Slider
evaluation
Evaluation
  • Having no formal evaluation
  • Successfully completed the projects
  • Most of effort was spent in physical construction
  • Little time working on the software
  • Demonstrations were accompanied by positive exclamations and by clapping
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Greatly simplifies programming devices
  • Programmers using Phidgets can rapidly develop physical interfaces
