Abstract

Pileus Internet Umbrella is a tangible mobile interface using familiarity of an umbrella to expand user's real world activities and experiences. It has a large visual screen on the top surface, wireless Internet connection, a camera, and motion and location sensors for embodied interaction. In this paper, we report a design intention for user experiences created by Pileus. Pileus has been experimented with several users and it points out requirements of a design of sociability of the interaction.
