Designing embodied interfaces for casual sound recording devices
In the Special Moment project we prototype and evaluate the design of interfaces for casual sound recording devices. These devices are envisioned to be used by a casual user to capture and store their everyday experiences in the form of "sound albums" ? collections of recordings related to a certain situation. We formulate a number of design principles for such recording devices, as well as implement and evaluate two working prototypes. A candle recorder allows for capturing the general atmosphere at a party, and the children's book recorder records the interactions between parents and children while reading a book together. Keywords Sound recording, context-aware, tangible & ambient UI, embodied interaction, life-logging, aesthetic computing. ACM Classification Keywords H5.m. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): User Interfaces: Input devices and strategies.
