Making Computers that Treat You Right

Making Computers that Treat You Right

Our world is filled with digital devices. Whereas some communicate seamlessly and we can easily input our needs, others are less intuitive. So, one dream is to have all computers understand and respond to our needs effortlessly. Research is underway towards making this a reality. To get there involves blending the boundaries between the physical and the digital, making our interactions with easy to use computers not just efficient but also delightful.

Making Easy To Use Computers that Adapt

Have you ever imagined a world where computers adapt to your needs? This idea is not as far-fetched as it might seem. Researchers and designers are working hard to create computers that can understand our commands, preferences, and even emotions. These efforts aim to make technology so intuitive that it becomes second nature to use, whether for work, play, or connecting with loved ones.

Banana Phone Anyone?

A group of Japanese scientists from Ishikawa Group Research have been developing a concept called ‘invoked technology’. It involves creating a multi-modal AR (Augmented Reality) system that can transform everyday objects into computer interfaces. They have run experiments that allow a banana to be used as a phone and a pizza box as a laptop! To be clear, the banana isn’t stuffed with computer chips, rather, it’s the act of pretending to use the banana as a phone that makes it work through the AR system. So, while these examples may sound a little silly, they actually represent a serious exploration into experiencing seamless and limitless technology.

Delicious Computing

Delicious computing takes the concept of making technology more accessible and engaging to a delightful extreme. So, it’s not just about using a banana as a phone. It’s about reimagining how we interact with the digital world in a way that’s engaging, fun, and perhaps even tasty. And probably involves a lot of arm and hand waving!

This approach to easy-to-use computers isn’t merely about novelty. It’s about breaking down the barriers that make technology feel impersonal or intimidating. Moreover, by infusing everyday objects with digital capabilities, we open up new avenues for creativity, learning, and personal expression. We’ll have computers everywhere but nowhere at the same time!
