Pervasive Interaction: Informal Tools for Designing Anywhere, Anytime, Anydevice User Interfaces (18 May 2001)
Our work has been in creating design tools that support the best practices of user-centered design. Such practices include the informal techniques used during the early stages of design, such as sketching and “faking” interactions using Wizard of Oz techniques to test early designs. In this talk we will argue that tools with informal user interfaces best support these practices. Informal user interfaces support natural human input, such as speech and writing, while minimizing recognition and transformation of the input. These interfaces that document, rather than transform, better support a designer’s flow state.
