Zhong, Yu, Suo, Yue, Xu, Wenchang, Yu, Chun, Guo, Xinwei, Zhao, Yuhang and Shi, Yuanchun (2011): Smart home on smart phone. In: Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2011. pp. 467-468. Available online

Mobile phone with high accessibility and usability is regarded as the ideal interface for the users to monitor and control the approaching smart home environment. Moreover, networking technologies and protocols have been advanced enough to support a universal monitoring and controlling interface on smart phones. This paper presents HouseGenie, an interactive, direct manipulation application on mobile, which supports a range of basic home monitoring and controlling functionalities as a replacement of individual remotes of smart home appliances. HouseGenie also addresses several common requirements that may be behind the vision, such as scenario, short-delay alarm, area restriction and so on. We demonstrate that HouseGenie not only provides intuitive presentations and interactions for smart home management, but also improves user experience comparing to present solutions.

Zhao, Yuhang, Xue, Chao, Cao, Xiang and Shi, Yuanchun (2011): PicoPet: "Real World" digital pet on a handheld projector. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 1-2. Available online

We created PicoPet, a digital pet game based on mobile handheld projectors. The player can project the pet into physical environments, and the pet behaves and evolves differently according to the physical surroundings. PicoPet creates a new form of gaming experience that is directly blended into the physical world, thus could become incorporated into the player's daily life as well as reflecting their lifestyle. Multiple pets projected by multiple players can also interact with each other, potentially triggering social interactions between players. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of PicoPet, as well as directions for future explorations.
