    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
