Take Me I’m Yours: Workshop Paper

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This demonstration introduces a smart phone application that was developed during the Heritage Inquiries: A Designerly Approach To Human Values workshop at DIS 2010, organised by Giaccardi and Sejer Iversen. Take Me I’m Yours extends the current continuum of personal barcode scanning software for smart phones that is currently limited to two modes: reading and writing, and adds a further dimension: actions.
Users of smart phone based barcode scanning applications are familiar with reading both one and two dimensional barcodes to link to internet based materials. Recent applications have also introduced a ‘write-back’ function that allows users to attach messages and stories to objects. The designers of Take Me I’m Yours speculate a design fiction in which object databases may begin to identify associations and propose ‘actions’ to a user.
The demonstration will offer delegates an opportunity to experience a sense of what it may feel like in the future for objects to begin telling us what to do.
