You will do 2 to 3 assignments to acquire hands-on experiences in social science field study methods. Details will be provided by Dray and Associates, with due dates of provided in class.

Current assignments (subject to change) include writing a 'hello world' style program based on the following technologies, and that shows off your understanding of those technologies (see schedule page for dates):

You will do several assignments to acquire hands-on experiences in particular technologies introduced in class. Assignments (subject to change) typically involve writing a 'hello world' style program based on the following technologies, and that shows off your understanding of those technologies (see schedule page for dates). It also involves researching and teaching one of these technologies to others, and populating a web page with that information.

Current assignments (subject to change) include (see schedule page for dates):

  • Assignment 1: Using the proximity toolkit to implement a simple proximity-based interactive system. This is an exercise in learning the proximity tookit, and in applying your learning to create a simple example that exploits its features.
  • Assignment 2: WiiMotes. Depending on the class membership, this may be another assignment similar to the above except using Phidgets or AR Tags, or a Tabletop toolkit.

The student must propose and carry through a major independent project in this area, with the project agreed upon by the instructor. Projects can cover a broad range of topics within the domestic computing area. Preference will be for projects that are tied to your research and that has potential to produce publishable results. Projects may focus on field research, technology, or a mix. For example:

  • a study/analysis of a particular niche relevant to domestic environments
  • design and implementation of a significant device and / or information appliance

The student must propose and carry through a major independent project in proxemic interaction, with the project agreed upon by the instructor. Projects can cover a broad range of topics within the proxemic interaction area. Preference will be for projects that are tied to your research (or to research by other students) and that has potential to produce publishable results. Projects will typical involve the design and implementation of a significant system. Projects will also require a formal CHI-style write-up and several presentations as the work progresses.

Written / oral presentations: 20%

  • Presentation: you will present at least one topic that you have researched to the class (includes collecting and disseminating resource materials). Make the content appropriate for the audience, i.e., you are speaking to your class members who have started reading and learning about ubicomp. Donít dumb it down, but donít start going so narrow that you lose everyone.
