MEMODULES are tangible shortcuts to multimedia information. Tangible
interfaces can be useful to establish links between our memory and
information. We call them "MEMODULES". They roost abstract information
in the real world through tangible shortcuts. MEMODULES are tiny tagged
physical objects containing a link towards information sources that can
be further accessed by several devices. We consider them as tangible
hypermarks, i.e. embedded hyperlinks to abstract information attached to
everyday physical objects. MEMODULES not only materialize information
in the real world through tangible reminders, they also help controlling
daily life devices.
This project follows two complementary approaches, user-centric and
device-centric, in order to design, implement and evaluate MEMODULES
facilitating (a) information access and categorization and also (b) the
control of everyday devices.
MEMODULES is a 4-years (2006-2009) research project co-funded by Hasler Foundation.
