To enable existing cell phones to interact with contents shown on large public screens in town, we propose "C-Blink," a new light signal marker method that uses the color liquid-crystal display of a cell phone as a visible light source. We overcome the performance limitations of such displays by developing a hue-difference-blink technique. In combination with a screen-side sensor, we describe a system that detects and receives light signal markers sent by cell phone displays. Evaluations of a prototype system confirm that C-Blink performs well under common indoor lighting. The C-Blink program can be installed in any mobile terminal that has a color display, and the installation costs are low. C-Blink is a very useful way of enabling screens to become interfaces for existing mobile terminals.

Dom, Byron, Bharat, Krishna, Broder, Andrei, Najork, Marc, Pedersen, Jan and Tonomura, Yoshinobu (2005): How search engines shape the web. In: Proceedings of the 2005 International Conference on the World Wide Web 2005. p. 879.
The state of the web today has been and continues to be greatly influenced by the existence of web-search engines. This panel will discuss the ways in which search engines have affected the web in the past and ways in which they may affect it in the future. Both positive and negative effects will be discussed as will potential measures to combat the latter. Besides the obvious ways in which search engines help people find content, other effects to be discussed include: the whole phenomenon of web-page spam, based on both text and link (e.g. link farms), the business of "Search Engine Optimization" (optimizing pages to rank highly in web-search results), the bided-terms business and the associated problem of click fraud, to name a few.

Fukumoto, Masaaki and Tonomura, Yoshinobu (1999): Whisper: A Wristwatch Style Wearable Handset. In: Altom, Mark W. and Williams, Marian G. (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 99 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference May 15-20, 1999, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. pp. 112-119.
"Whisper" is a new wrist-worn handset, which is used by inserting the fingertip into the ear canal. A received signal is conveyed from a wrist-mounted actuator to the ear canal via the hand and a finger by bone conduction. The user's voice is captured by a microphone mounted on the inside of the wrist. All components of Whisper can be mounted on the wrist, and usability does not decrease if the size of components is miniaturized. So, both wearability and usability can be achieved together. The way Whisper is operated is similar to that of an ordinary telephone handset. Thus, onlookers may not look upon Whisper's operation as "talking to oneself", even if the associated PDA is controlled by voice commands. Whisper is especially effective in a noisy environment. Signals received via bone conduction can be heard clearly in the presence of noise without raising the volume (-12 dB at noise = 90 dB(A) in comparison to cellular phone handset). Whisper is also effective in avoiding the annoying problem of the user's voice being raised in a noisy situation. Feedback of the user's utterance is boosted by bone conduction when covering the ear canal with a fingertip, then the user's voice does not need to raised in the presence of noise (-6 dB at noise = 90 dB(A) in comparison to cellular phone handset). Whisper is useful as a voice interface for a wrist-worn PDA and cellular phone.

Proceedings of the ACM CHI 93 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference April 24-29, 1993, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. pp. 131-136.
A new approach to interacting with stored video is proposed. The approach utilizes VideoMAP and VideoSpaceIcon. VideoMAP is the interface that shows the essential video features in an easy to perceive manner. VideoSpaceIcon represents the temporal and spatial characteristics of a video shot as an intuitive icon. A video indexing method supports both tools. These tools allow the user's creativity to directly interact with the essential features of each video by offering spatial and temporal clues. This paper introduces the basic concept and describes prototype versions of the tools as implemented in a video handling system. VideoMAP and VideoSpaceIcon are effective for video handling functions such as video content analysis, video editing, and various video applications which need an intuitive visual interface.
