Kadomura, Azusa, Tsukada, Koji, Baba, Tetsuaki and Kushiyama, Kumiko (2012): Hangul Gangul: interactive toy for Hangul learning. In: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction 2012. pp. 323-324.

We propose an interactive toy, "Hangul Gangul", which helps users learn Hangul characters using a tangible interface. Using our system, users can enjoy learning Hangul characters by combining physical blocks representing vowel and consonant characters. Our system aims to encourage collaborative learning between children and adults.

Sato, Ayaka and Tsukada, Koji (2012): CookTab: smart cutting board for creating recipe with real-time feedback. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 543-544.

Although many cooking recipes have been shared in the world, there are still many homemade meals that are never written down as recipes. The difficulty to create recipes of such homemade meals lies on (1) experienced cookers might not have accurate information of ingredients (e.g., weight and timing) since they often decide the amount of ingredients just by intuition, (2) they often have trouble to record such accurate information while cooking. To solve these problems, we propose a smart cutting board, CookTab, which allows a user to easily record his/her cooking activities (e.g., the names and quantities of ingredients) while provides real-time feedback to motivate him/her.

Nakagawa, Maki, Tsukada, Koji and Siio, Itiro (2012): CalMate: communication support system for couples using a calm avatar. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 604-605.

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.

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.

Nakagawa, Maki, Tsukada, Koji and Siio, Itiro (2011): Smart makeup system: supporting makeup using lifelog sharing. In: Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2011. pp. 483-484.

Although many women wear makeup every day, they often have difficulty in varying their makeup. In this paper, we propose "Smart Makeup System" that helps users find new makeup methods for use with their daily cosmetics by sharing makeup logs (makeup pictures and cosmetics usages) on the web.

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.

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.

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.

Tsukada, Koji, Mizushima, Yuka, Ogata, Ai and Siio, Itiro (2010): LetterTwitter: smart mailbox for spam-filtered notification of received letters. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2010. pp. 439-440.

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.

Tsujita, Hitomi, Tsukada, Koji and Itiro, Siio (2010): InPhase: evaluation of a communication system focused on "happy coincidences" of daily behaviors. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 2481-2490.

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 activities 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 locations. By equipping furniture and appliances such as doors, sofas, refrigerators and televisions with sensors, we developed a system wherein these items are connected to remote equivalents and their near simultaneous use is communicated. We conducted a two month field test of the system in a laboratory setting and a three month field test in an actual home. The study showed that the participant felt the presence of other people and thought about, imagined or even confirmed the habits of others by intentionally triggering the coincidence notification.

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.

Tsukada, Koji and Kambara, Keisuke (2010): IODisk: disk-type i/o interface for browsing digital contents. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 403-404.

We propose a disk-type I/O interface, IODisk, which helps users browse various digital contents intuitively in their living environment. IODisk mainly consists of a forcefeedback mechanism integrated in the rotation axis of a disk. Users can control the playing speed/direction contents (e.g., videos or picture slideshows) in proportion to the rotational speed/direction of the disk. We developed a prototype system and some applications.

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.

Tsukada, Koji and Oki, Maho (2009): ChameleonBall. In: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction 2009. pp. 387-388.

We propose a novel ball-type input/output (I/O) device -- the ChameleonBall -- that allows users to interact with colors in the real world. The ChameleonBall mainly consists of multiple color I/O units in an acrylic ball. It can detect the colors of objects in the real world and emit similar colors. We have developed a prototype system and a few applications using this device.
