Abstract/Description

In this paper, we describe a series of workshops which were carried out in homes of five
families in Scotland. The aim of the workshops was to explore the requirements that people have for
new technologies in a household environment. The workshops were video-taped, transcribed and
analysed from a number of perspectives. In this paper we concentrate on an analysis of the transcripts
from the perspective of ubiquitous computing. The designs of possible future technologies will also be
examined. Conclusions as to the applicability of the methods used here for future ubiquitous computing
research and research in households are presented
