Pico projectors have lately been investigated as mobile display and interaction devices. Everyday objects sojourning in a beam are turned into dedicated projection surfaces and tangible interaction devices. While this has been explored for large projectors, the affordances of pico projectors are fundamentally different: they have a very small and strictly limited projection ray and can be carried around in a nomadic way during the day. Thus it is unclear how this could be actually leveraged for tangible interaction with physical, real world objects. We have investigated this in an exploratory field study and contribute the results. Based upon these,Read More
Four years ago a little known senator, Barack Obama, became the forty-fourth President of the United States of America. Experts suggest that one of the most influential factors for President Obama’s win in the previous election was his engagement on social media channels. Social media marketing is an often misunderstood and underutilized tool for politicians and even businesses. These channels have the ability to reach out to millions of users. It is now another election year and there are plenty of opportunities for the presidential candidates to utilize social media. If we take a look at who has the most FacebookRead More
In 2009, auto accidents caused by distracted driving left over 5,000 people killed, and 450,000 injured. With smartphone use growing rapidly, along with new developments like Facebook integration with your car’s dashboard, the number of distracted driving accidents, it would seem, has nowhere to go but up.

Sharing is natural. We share a lot of things in our daily lives whether through social networks, email or IM. The problem arises when we share sensitive information with others. We easily send emails with usernames, passwords or other important information to our friends, co-workers and clients without thinking. Its simple and quick to do and we tend to trust those we share this information with. However, there are always digital traces left behind that we never think about. Consider this for a minute. You just emailed your wife the pin number to your ATM account. Was the emailed deleted orRead More
We have said that Windows 8 is a complete reimagination of the Windows operating system. Nothing has been left unexplored, including the Windows logo, to evaluate how it held up to modern PC sensibilities. The Windows logo is a strong and widely recognized mark but when we stepped back and analyzed it, we realized an evolution of our logo would better reflect our Metro style design principles and we also felt there was an opportunity to reconnect with some of the powerful characteristics of previous incarnations. Microsoft is making plenty of big changes with its Windows 8 operating system, and thatRead More
