Ambient Media – “Ubiquitous” and “Pervasive” Computers as a New Form for Interaction Design

For quite some time I have been investigating ‘ambient media’ – media empowered by ubiquitous and pervasive computers. The term ‘ambient’ refers to “ambient intelligence”, a research initiative from the EU. Ambient media are media objects embedded throughout our natural environment. I investigated theories, technologies, business impact, and effects on human-computer-interaction in ambient environments.

From Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambient_media): “Ambient media in a larger scale define the media environment and the communication of information in ubiquitous and pervasive environments. The concept of ambient media relates to ambient media form, ambient media content, and ambient media technology. These new technologies are based on ambient intelligent technology and create new possibilities in ambient advertising. Its principles are manifestation, morphing, intelligence, and experience and have been defined by Artur Lugmayr [1] and its business models are described in Multimedia Tools and Applications.[2]
