At the moment, I’m attending Mensch und Computer 2007. The invited talk of this morning was very nice, altough it was given via Skype as the speaker, Adrian David Cheok fell ill and was not allowed to travel. The talk had also some funny parts including a wearable suit for a chicken equipped with vibration devices. The idea is that by interacting with a chicken puppet, the user can remotely stroke his pet chicken. The puppet is mounted on a XY plotter-like device that can then display the motions of the chicken in its cage.
Tomorrow, our workshop on nomadic and wearable user interfaces will take place and I hope that we will have interesting discussions.
