Floor Interaction - HCI Reaching New Ground
Within architecture, there is a long tradition of careful design of floors. The design has been concerned with both decorating floors and designing floors to carry information. Ubiquitous computing technology offers new opportunities for designing interactive floors. This paper presents three different interactive floor concepts. Through an urban perspective it draws upon the experiences of floors in architecture and reflects upon these concepts, and provides a set of design issues for designing interactive floors.
