Beyond The Desktop explores how interaction devices have been designed to date, before considering the use of interaction devices and the implications for future design and development. This book will be invaluable to designers, researchers, and psychology/computer science students working in human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, ergonomics, human factors, and engineering psychology. Each chapter contains a brief discussion relating the principle themes of the chapter to either practice or research, and throughout the book examples are supported by empirical research. The aim is to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the design and use of interaction devices and possible approaches to the study of such issues. The reader also sees the benefits to be gained from developing a new generation of user-centred interaction devices which allow computers to move beyond the desktop.
