Dramatic changes are underway in the field of Human–Computer Interaction. Just as graphical-based user interfaces replaced the text-base user interfaces of the 1980s, changes are being seen in the range of devices which people can use to interact with computers. The new devices will reflect developments being made in technology, which suggest that computers are moving into domains other than the traditional office or workspace.
Beyond the Desktop examines current input devices and describes user performance with a range of devices and approaches. The final portion of the book considers the new challenges to HCI including changes in operating domain, issues of work related injury, the interaction between computing and work, and multimodal HCI. Babers aim is to provide his reader with a comprehensive understanding of the issues involved in the design and use of interaction devices, and the benefits to be gained from developing a new generation of user-centered devices which allow computers to move beyond the desktop.
