Towards Ambient Notifications

Müller, Heiko and Pielot, Martin and de Olivera, Rodrigo
In this paper we report on two studies for displaying information in the periphery of the user's attention. One experiment explores the use of ambient light to inform users of upcoming tasks in an offi ce scenario, while the other investigates whether vibro-tactile displays can become peripheral. We show that both modalities have potential for conveying information outside a user's focussed attention.
