Due to recent technological advances, it has become possible to integrate sensor and actuator technologies as well as wireless communication in everyday objects and environments. These developments open up a huge amount of innovative interaction scenarios, involving new forms of user interfaces. This half day tutorial gives an overview of the emerging field of everywhere interfaces, referring to computing devices that disappear within objects of everyday life and thus enable omnipresent physical interfaces to the digital world, describes the state of the art of sensor and actuator technologies and demonstrates the development of a smart artefact for controlling everyday envirnnments.
