Following up on these famous questions, I design and research experiences, interactions and user interfaces while taking on a human-centred perspective.
We developed a prototyping platform in cooperation between experts in camera operation, mechanical engineering and computer science. It consists of a motion control system for sliding camera moves composed of affordable hardware and open source software. It supports connecting various types of user interfaces via Bluetooth wirelessly. This setup fosters the exploration of different user interfaces and control strategies in-the-wild, as it is easy to transport and stable for use in the field. A prototype of our platform was used by professional filmmakers in real commercial assignments.

While gaze holds a lot of promise for hands-free interaction with public displays, remote eye trackers with their confined tracking box restrict users to a single stationary position in front of the display. We present EyeScout, an active eye tracking system that combines an eye tracker mounted on a rail system with a computational method to automatically detect and align the tracker with the user’s lateral movement. EyeScout addresses key limitations of current gaze-enabled large public displays by offering two novel gaze-interaction modes for a single user.
