Auraorb ambient notification March 10, 2007

Posted by Melissa Quintanilha in ambient displays, gadgets, innovative interfaces, physical interaction design.

AuraOrb is an ambient notification display that deploys “progressive turn taking” techniques to minimize notification disruptions. It uses social awareness cues, such as eye contact to detect user interest in an initially ambient light notification. Once detected, it displays a text message with a notification heading visible from 360 degrees. Touching the orb causes the associated message to be displayed on the user’s computer screen. When user interest is lost, AuraOrb automatically reverts back to its idle state.
