Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach for a mobile HCI design with a concept of "Full- Embodied Web". The goal of Full-Embodied Web is that, when user takes natural embodied interactions to a special mobile device, it augments their experiences in real world accessing information on social resources on the web. The growth of the web has been supported by immersive interaction of GUI, and it has been strengthening cyber space separated from our real world experiences. Now Full-Embodied Web tries to use context information and physical abilities of users to provide a natural way to access web services in a mobile situation. Its design consider 1) to use embodied interactions to operate information on the device, 2) to react to user contexts automatically from a combination of sensors, and 3) to synchronize information of user activities with social web services. As one example of Full-embodied Web, The Inetenet-Ready Umbrella named Pileus was designed. Pileus is an umbrella-type mobile web browser enables us to access a social-photo sharing (Flickr) and a 3D Map Navigation (Google Earth) by a natural embodied interaction and contextual activities in a city.
