Abstract

We are in the midst of an explosion of emerging human-computer interaction techniques that have redefined our understanding of both computers and interaction. We propose the notion of Reality-Based Interaction (RBI) as a unifying concept that ties together a large subset of these emerging interaction styles. Through RBI we are attempting to provide a framework that can be used to understand, compare, and relate current paths of HCI research. Viewing interaction through the lens of RBI can provide insights for designers and allows us to find gaps or opportunities for future development. Furthermore, we are using RBI to develop new evaluation techniques for features of emerging interfaces that are currently unquantifiable.
