Research questions l.jpg
Research Questions

  • How do you get a bunch of devices in a room, add people and large displays, and really make it work? 

  • What do we really know about how multiple iworkers or consumers will work effectively integrating all of these technologies?

    • (Hint: it may be less than you think!)

  • And, what new tasks and activities do multiple device ecologies support well?

What we know now l.jpg
What We Know Now

  • There are many issues with multiple users and large displays

    • Moving information around

    • Selecting information without disrupting multiple users

    • Sharing v. privacy issues

    • Physical v. virtual display spaces for content

    • Supporting shared contextual awareness

    • Supporting social proxemics and protocols

Moving information around l.jpg
Moving Information Around…

  • What to do when you have your information spread out in physically large display surfaces?

  • Real display at Georgia Tech (Hutchings et al.)

WinCuts: Initial Motivation

  • Problems:

    • Sharing live windows/information is hard

    • Screen space is scarce and laying out information optimally is hard

We were thinking l.jpg
We Were Thinking…

  • With remote input redirection working:

    • Ad hoc remote controls and interfaces

    • Work across displays and devices

Cell Phone

Laptop or




Selecting information w o disrupting l.jpg
Selecting Information w/o Disrupting

  • We still haven’t built an electronic whiteboard that supports collaboration

  • Best was PARC’s LiveBoard

  • Multiple inputs doing real world tasks 

Sharing v privacy l.jpg
Sharing v. Privacy

  • George will discuss this some with“The Box”

  • We know from studies that if you put your personal information on a large display, co-located users will consume it!

    • “You put it there, you must have wanted me to read it.”

  • We need designs that account for thefact that others might be present insocial contexts

Interaction based on distance l.jpg
Interaction Based On Distance

  • Vogel & Balakrishnan’s notion of an interactive, ambient, public display

  • Different functionality based on distance

    • Ambient, Implicit, Subtle and Personal spaces

Physical v virtual spaces l.jpg
Physical v. Virtual Spaces

  • Problem: users have multiple desktops

    • wall of monitors

    • how to switch focus?

    • might be using a phone or remote control

  • Solution: TaskZones
