Abstract

The paper proposes an intuitive device selecting interface called "Vib-connect" for device collaboration. Recent progress in Information Technology allowed various devices to join wireless network. As a result, various ways of device collaborations and services became possible. However, interfaces for selecting devices are still complicated for end-users and far from being intuitive. To solve this problem, we propose "vibconnect", an interface which enables users to select device intuitively by pasting a vib-connector, a small vibration-based device. Vib-connect solves these problem by implementing these device information as a unique vibration pattern. By keeping smartphones or any kind of vibration generating device, end-users can easily select devices to collaborate. We implement a prototype, and through the evaluation, we confirmed high accuracy in vibration pattern detection and high usability satisfaction by nonexpert users. By using "Vib-connect", users without any technical expertize can easily select devices to collaborate with.
