Interactive Displays in Public Spaces

Daniel Michelis recently completed his Ph.D. dissertation on a topic that is dear to my heart. Information about his research can be found on his Interactive Displays in Public Spaces blog.

(Note: This was cross posted on the Technology-Supported Human World Interaction blog.)

Here are links to a few of his posts:

Interactive Displays: Perception, Awareness, and Interaction

Evaluating Interaction with Display Applications in Public Space

I especially like the diagrams Daniel uses to depict zones of interaction:

I'm not sure if many DOOH folks understand this.

See my recent post about my unsuccessful interaction with a display in the Orlando airport: http://interactivemultimediatechnology.blogspot.com/2011/01/interactive-display-with-qr-tag-close.html
