  1. Mobile HCI IS 698/800 Spring 2013 Shaun Kane Week 2: Project

  2. Welcome back! Syllabus review (v.final) Finding research papers Project planning

  3. If you missed last class Read this: http://umbcmobilehci.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/so-you-missed-the-first-class/

  4. Revisit web site / calendar http://umbcmobilehci.wordpress.com/

  5. Syllabus update Added app presentations (for extra credit) Clarified assignment due dates Posted full assignment descriptions / grading rubrics

  6. Any questions? Comments?

  7. Finding research papers Finding good papers to discuss is a key part of this course We’ll spend a few minutes exploring research tools

  8. Starting points • Most useful: The ACM Digital Library: http://dl.acm.org • IEEE XPlore: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org • HCIBib: http://hcibib.org/ • Microsoft Academic Search: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ • Google Scholar: http://scholar.google.com

  9. Good papers Research papers Focus on HCI and mobile 8-15 pages … if in doubt, ask ahead of time Email 3 candidates Sunday the week before (10 days before); we’ll pick one

  10. Accessing readings off-campus UMBC library article search http://www.umbc.edu/aok/main/index.html See library help guidehttp://aok.lib.umbc.edu/services/remoteaccess.php

  11. Class project • Big part of this course (25%) • Group design project: designing a mobile application to solve a specific problem • Interview potential users • Paper prototyping • Refine design • Present a video demonstrating yourprototype

  12. Project ideas • Choose basic projects as described here • But customize based on your group’s interests • Must be feasible to code (even if you don’t code it) • Shaun projects • Minimal attention texting • Accessible camera • Blind radio • From students: • Art identification

  13. Minimal attention texting • The problem: How can we send and receive messages without looking at the device? • Assume no magic hardware, and no headset • Touch screen, vibration motor, other device sensors • How to input without looking (in the pocket, under the desk) • How to receive useful messages without looking (and no headset)

  14. Accessible photography • Traditional cameras are hard to use for lots of people • Older adults, kids, people with motor impairments: • aiming the camera is hard • hard to take clear pictures • Blind people • Hard to know what’s in the photo • Hard to aim at a target • Pick a group, design a solution

  15. Blind radio • Interesting things are all around us • Some are useful, some are just interesting • Design an audio interface that tells the user about things in the environment • Useful, interesting, and both • Could be useful for blind people, tourists, etc. • Must be safe to use while walking around

  16. Art discovery (from Jen B.) • Camera-based app • Take pictures of art, and learn more about the art • Take pictures of other things in the environment to learn about art • ???

  17. Group finding algorithm • Project ideas on board • Who are you? (pick one) • A hacker • A project manager • A designer • Pick a project • Then, form a group

  18. Group activity Generate some ideas Start working on G1
