Mobile Interaction Does Not Exist @ Alt.CHI


Joe Marshall and I have just published a somewhat controversial paper at Alt.CHI 2013 (Part of CHI2013) in Paris. In it we suggest that there really is no such thing as mobile interaction, and that a whole school of interaction design needs to adjust to account for the fact that when people are actually moving, its incredibly difficult to interact with computing systems (see the picture above). Alt CHI is a great place to put discussion generating pieces, and this year was no exception. If you’d like to read it and see if you agree with us, you can find the paper here.

The presentation will go down in history as probably the only one in which the presenter (Joe) gaffer taped himself to the desk.
