about

Computing devices havebecome ever more present in our everyday environments, however embedding thesetechnologies into our routines has remained a challenge. This book exploresthe novel theory of peripheral interaction to rectify this. This theory examines how interactivesystems canbe developed in such a way to allow people to seamlessly interact withtheir computer devices, but only focus on them at relevant times, building onthe way in which people effortlessly divide their attention over severaleveryday activities in day to day life.

Capturing the currentstate of the art within the field, this book explores the history and foundationaltheories of peripheral interaction, discussesnovel interactive styles suitable for peripheral interaction, addressesdifferent application domains which can benefit from peripheral interaction andpresents visions of how thesedevelopments can have a positive impact on our future lives. As such, thisbook's aim is to contribute to research and practice in fields such ashuman-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing and Internet of Things, a viewon how interactive technology could be redesigned to form a meaningful, yetunobtrusive part of people's everyday lives.

Peripheral Interaction will be highly beneficial to researchers anddesigners alike in areas such as HCI, Ergonomics and Interaction Design.
