Designing Physical User Interfaces with Phidgets
Many new directions in Interface Design include Physical User Interfaces - an interacting collection of hardware and software components that includes things like sensors, motors, actuators, RFID tags, and very small displays. The problem is that current physical user interface toolkits are hard to prototype, especially if they comprise distributed components. Our solution is Phidgets, a toolkit for rapidly prototyping distributed physical interfaces. This presentation will describe what Phidgets are, and will demonstrate how people with only modest programming skills can program a physical user interface.
