  • Collates, summarizes and puts into perspective material from some of the most prominent teams who pioneered the domain of AE
  • Authors approach is grounded in actual experience
  • A growing market - good practice is not yet established, and building such augmented rooms is not routine, so such constructions will involve consultants and architects, and local academia, who will need food for thought
  • Academics as well as sponsor institutions are looking for legitimate scientific sources to refer to

Augmented environments – where objects are empowered by underlying information technology, are now installed in an ever-growing number of offices, public spaces and homes. However designing them to be usable and user-friendly remains a challenge.

This book provides an overview and summary of the key research undertaken in augmented environments by some of the most prominent laboratories in the field worldwide (Stanford, Carnegie-Mellon, Fuji-Xerox Palo Alto, EDF R&D, Politecnico di Milano, Swedish Royal Institute of Technology, Russian Academy of Science, UC San Diego, University of Aachen). The book covers all relevant aspects of Augmented Environments from architecture to computer science and psychology. Most useful theories (activity theory, distributed cognition, cognitive attractors, perceived quality…) and design principles (COTS, semantic Rubicon, never-endingness…) as well as practical patterns for implementation are provided by the seminal authors themselves.

With this overview, readers can benefit from the experiences of key researchers in the field to construct robust, efficient and user-friendly augmented environments. All those working in the field of human-computer interaction will find this book an invaluable reference source.
