Sharing Kinetic Interactions for Mobile Devices

Bashar Altakrouri, Darren Carlson, Andreas Schrader


Infrastructure for sharing, adapting and deploying interaction techniques remains an enduring challenge for real-world pervasive computing ecosystems (ambient spaces). In this paper, we address this challenge by introducing the concept of Interaction Plugins, which enables interaction techniques to be constructed as shareable units of functionality and dynamically deployed into a variety of ambient spaces during runtime. To this end, this paper will discuss two important issues in detail: community-based creation of interaction plugins and runtime deployment of interaction plugins. The paper also features a mobilebased implementation of this approach based on the Dynamix context framework.
