Have you ever experienced a mirror that not only “sees” how you see yourself, but tells you how others perceive you? May such a smartmirror help not only adapt/improve oneself externally (look) but also internally (mood, emotions)? What are the expectations, fears (privacy)? The acceptance of such a smart thing requires approaches that go beyond technology-driven designs. In this paper …

The materiality of urban spaces has been changing by progress and consequently the way we, as townsmen or visitors, interact in these spaces is changing. For example, within the last decade using a mobile digital bus ticket has become a common practice in many cities around the world. Contemporary progress in mobile augmented reality technologies has already introduced novel pervasive displays, such as Microsoft’s HoloLens, which allows to display mixed realities containing tangible real and “intangible” holographic objects. Now, we seem to be at a crossroads …

Up to now, Environs has been made public (hcm-lab.de/environs) and open source (hcm-lab.de/git/environs/environs) and the most important concepts as well as design rationales have been published in the proceedings of the EICS conference in 2014.

Potential usage examples have been presented and discussed, e.g. in the domain of Internet of Things (ITS 2014, Dresden) or collaborative visualization of energy consumptions (INTERACT 2015, Bamberg).

In order to further promote Environs and discuss the applicability of the concepts behind, the Environs framework has been submitted and (fortunately) accepted for discussion in workshops at the Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces conference in Madeira, Portugal, 14.th – 18.th November 2015.
