Technological advances, miniaturization of embedded computing technology and wireless communi-cation together with the evolution of global networks like the internet, have brought the vision of pervasive and ubiquitous computing to life: technology seamlessly woven into the ?fabric of everyday life?. Along with this
development goes the need and challenge of interfaces supporting an
intuitive, unobtrusive and distraction free interaction with such
technology-rich environments. Considering the huge amount, and ever growing number of a vast manifold of heterogeneous, small, embedded or mobile devices shaping the ?pervasive computing landscape?, makes traditional, explicit and attention based styles of interaction appear hopeless. To make computing part of everyday life, the interfacing must go beyond traditional explicit interaction: pervasive computing system designs will have to ?and are already successfully attempting? to revert the principle of the user being in an active and attentive role, to one where technology is attentive and active. Interaction is becoming implicit...
