Devices as interactive physical containers: the Shoogle system.
Williamson, John and Murray-Smith, Roderick and Hughes, Stephen (2007) Devices as interactive physical containers: the Shoogle system. In: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems , April 28–May 3, 2007, San Jose, California, USA..
Shoogle is a novel interface for sensing data within a mobile device, such as presence and properties of text messages or remaining resources. It is based around active exploration: devices are shaken, revealing the contents rattling around “inside”. Vibrotactile display and realistic impact sonification create a compelling system. Inertial sensing is used for completely eyes-free, singlehanded interaction. Prototypes run on both PDA's and on standard mobile phones with a wireless sensor pack.
