We are now entering the era of pervasive computing, an era where people
will access information and services anywhere, anytime, and from a wide
variety of devices. The challenge for researchers and practitioners is how
to support the design of user interfaces that will empower people to
engage in these interactions easily and efficiently. Our work has been in
creating design tool that support the best practices of user-centered
design. Such practices include the informal techniques used during the
early stages of design, such as sketching and “faking” interactions using
Wizard of Oz techniques to test early designs.
