How do users think about ubiquitous computing?
As ubiquitous computing technology migrates into the home environment, there has been a concurrent effort to allow users to build and customize such technologies to suit their own specific needs. Many tools have been built to enable users with little or no programming knowledge to build such applications. Despite the de-emphasis on programming, however, these tools are often device-centric, rather than user-centric. In this paper, we investigate how people describe and conceptualize ubiquitous computing applications and technology. We examine how people naturally express ideas for novel applications to build conceptual models upon which to base future interfaces for creating ubiquitous computing applications. Author Keywords Ubiquitous computing, automated capture and access applications, design models, end-user programming ACM Classification Keywords H5.2. User Interfaces: Prototyping, User-centered design.
