Tablets in space: How spatially-aware interaction with mobile devices can improve cognition and collaboration.

  • Hans-Christian Jetter (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


I will talk about our new technology HuddleLamp ( that tracks the positions of multiple uninstrumented, off-the-shelf mobile devices in a room or on a desk. This real-time information about the spatial (or proxemic) relations between devices enables new designs of cross-device interactions and distributed applications. Apart from demonstrating the potential of such cross-device interaction for (collaborative) sensemaking, visualization, or knowledge work, I will also talk about different studies in which we elicited cross-device gestures from users or experimentally determined the effect of physically moving devices or hands in space on human cognition (e.g. memory performance).
