Research interests:I am currently most interested in the following aspects of mobile guides (see Aixplorer):
- Merging indoor and outdoor tracking
- Enhancing the social activity, i.e. support the group experience through the guide system (technically and conceptually).
- Locative gaming
I hope to be able to investigate these matters in detail once the AIXplorer platform is technically at a stage that allows quickly implementing relevant prototypes and run experiments on a large scale with real users.
Other than that I hope to get my hands on a prototyping kit for flexible displays (or a means to disassemble one to build it into a custom device) to further research into bendable device interaction.
