Yokokubo, Anna, Sskilahti, Kirsti, Kangaskorte, Riitta, Luimula, Mika and Siio, Itiro (2012): CADo: a supporting system for flower arrangement. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2012. pp. 42-45. Available online

Flower arrangement is enjoyed all over the world as a way of gardening and in decoration of rooms. However, it is difficult to make arrangements as beautiful as possible for beginners. Some rules about layout and color combination of flower arrangement are required in order for beginners to beautifully arrange the flowers. Moreover, the process is sometimes unreversible; that is, if a user cuts a stem too short, it may irrevocably spoil the arrangement. To solve these problems, we propose a computer-supported flower arrangement simulator, "CADo", which helps beginners enjoy flower arrangements using familiar materials. The name CADo is a combination of Kado (the Japanese art of flower arrangement) and CAD (computer aided design). CADo helps users with arrangement suggestions based on traditional layout and color combination of flower arrangement, and instructs users on how to cut flowers and to arrange them step by step. First, we performed a feasibility study to implement the proper rules of flower arrangement to our system, after which the system was built and developed. Finally, we verified the effectiveness of our system through evaluative experiment.

Many people find that communication between men and women is difficult regardless of their efforts to understand their partners. Especially, negative feelings cause troubles on communication of couple members. In this paper, we proposed a novel communication support system for couples that helps couple members share their negative feelings and heal over them smoothly using a physical avatar.

Nakagawa, Maki, Tsukada, Koji and Siio, Itiro (2011): Smart skincare system: remote skincare advice system using life logs. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Augmented Human International Conference 2011. p. 21. Available online

Many women find it difficult to maintain beautiful skin as skincare approaches require a great deal of effort, time, and special knowledge. Women often ask experts in cosmetic stores for skincare advice. However, this approach has limitations in terms of time, place, and privacy. To solve these problems, we propose a remote skincare advice system using life logs. This system helps users automatically log information related to their skin condition and share these data with skincare experts in order to obtain appropriate advice. First, we performed a feasibility study to select proper life log data for our system, and then we built prototype systems. Finally, we verified the effectiveness of our system through two studies.

Suga, Chihiro and Siio, Itiro (2011): Anamorphicons: an extended display with a cylindrical mirror. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2011. pp. 242-243. Available online

We developed an interactive system which takes the technique of Anamorphosis, with a 2D display and a cylindrical mirror. In this system, a distorted image is shown on a flat panel display or tabletop surface, and the original image will appear on the cylindrical mirror when a user puts it on the display. By detecting the position and rotation of the cylinder, the system provides interaction between the user and the image on the cylinder. In our current prototype, an iPad screen and its multi-touch display is used to detect the cylinder.

Komatsuzaki, Mizuho, Tsukada, Koji, Siio, Itiro, Verronen, Pertti, Luimula, Mika and Piesk, Sakari (2011): IteMinder: finding items in a room using passive RFID tags and an autonomous robot (poster). In: Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2011. pp. 599-600. Available online

We propose a novel search technique called IteMinder that helps users find property in a room using passive RFID and an autonomous robot. First, we attach RFID tags to the target items and at typical locations in a room. We also attach an RFID reader and a laser rangefinder to the robot. The robot can move around the entire room automatically while avoiding obstacles using the laser rangefinder. When the robot finds a tagged item, it uploads the tag ID and location information to the database. Users can then browse target items and their locations on a common web browser.

Tsujita, Hitomi, Tsukada, Koji, Kambara, Keisuke and Siio, Itiro (2010): Complete fashion coordinator: a support system for capturing and selecting daily clothes with social networks. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2010. pp. 127-132. Available online

For some people, selecting the clothes you wear is sometimes tedious, difficult and requires you to remember what you have previously worn. While there are many fashion SNS (Social Networking Services) sites and related research devoted to addressing certain aspects of this issue, there is no system that combines both the automated cataloguing of one's own clothes with near real-time recommendation by their social network. In this paper, we propose a novel system which allows users to easily organize and optimize their daily clothing selection based on historical data. By combining historical information about what the user has worn with several options such as the user's planned activities and the weather, it can help the user in coordinating what to wear. In order to simplify and automate the capture, storage and cataloging of image of the users clothing, we propose a system which allows for the automatic and standardized capturing of a person's clothes by simply hanging an item on a hook built into a cabinet. Furthermore, by utilizing the internet and common SNS sites, it allows friends, family living apart and/or romantic couples to seamlessly share the catalogued photos of their clothes, initiate conversation and help select what is appropriate to wear.

We propose a smart mailbox called "LetterTwitter" that can automatically capture dropped snail mail (s-mail), classify pictures into several categories (e.g., letters or flyers), and upload categorized pictures to the Web. Users can easily get spam-filtered notification of received letters using PCs or cellular phones equipped with common web browsers.

Many women find it difficult to maintain beautiful skin since different skincare approaches require different amounts of effort, time, and special knowledge. Women often ask experts in cosmetic stores for skincare advice. However, this approach has the limitations of time, place, and personal information. To solve these problems, we propose a remote skincare advice system that uses life logs. This system helps users to automatically log information related to their skin condition and share these data with skincare experts in order to obtain appropriate advice.

Tsujita, Hitomi, Tsukada, Koji and Siio, Itiro (2009): InPhase: a communication system focused on "happy coincidences" of daily behaviors. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 3401-3406. Available online

To supplement existing forms of communication such as telephone and e-mail, this research proposes a new method of communicating "awareness" between people who are separated by long distances. In this paper, we investigate cases where coincidences in daily behaviors lead to casual conversation and thus intimacy and togetherness. We propose a new method of communicating these "happy coincidences" between a pair of remotely located houses. By equipping furniture and appliances such as doors, sofas, refrigerators and televisions with sensors, we developed a system where these items are connected to remote equivalents and their near simultaneous use is communicated.

Siio, Itiro and Tsujita, Hitomi (2006): Mobile interaction using paperweight metaphor. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2006. pp. 111-114. Available online

Conventional scrolling methods for small sized display in PDAs or mobile phones are difficult to use when frequent switching of scrolling and editing operations are required, for example, browsing and operating large sized WWW pages. In this paper, we propose a new user-interface method to provide seamless switching between scrolling and other operations such as editing, based on "Paperweight Metaphor". A sheet of paper that has been placed on a slippery table is difficult to draw on. Therefore, in order to write or draw something on the sheet of paper, a person must secure the paper with his/her palm to avoid the paper from moving. This will be a good metaphor to design switching operation of scroll and editing modes. We have made prototype systems by placing a touch sensor under each PDA display where user's palm will be hit. Three application programs - map browser, WWW browser, and photograph browser - that switch between scrolling and other operation modes depending on sensor output have been developed. We have carried out user tests on this mode switching method and have received favorable feedback on the same.

Proceedings of the 12th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 07 - 10, 1999, Asheville, North Carolina, United States. pp. 113-119. Available online

We introduce an inexpensive position input device called the FieldMouse, with which a computer can tell the position of the device on paper or any flat surface without using special input tablets or position detection devices. A FieldMouse is a combination of an ID recognizer like a barcode reader and a mouse which detects relative movement of the device. Using a FieldMouse, a user first detects an ID on paper by using the barcode reader, and then drags it from the ID using the mouse. If the location of the ID is known, the location of the dragged FieldMouse can also be calculated by adding the amount of movement from the ID to the position of the FieldMouse. Using a FieldMouse in this way, any flat surface can work as a pointing device that supports absolute position input, just by putting an ID tag somewhere on the surface. A FieldMouse can also be used for enabling a graphical user interface (GUI) on paper or on any flat surface by analyzing the direction and the amount of mouse movement after detecting an ID. In this paper, we introduce how a FieldMouse can be used in various situations to enable computing in real-world environments.
