Abstract

In this paper, we describe a case study in which we explore the opportunity of gesture tangible interfaces to allow the retrieval of web content. Wi-roni provides audio content (streaming radio and podcasts), and the interface is based on capturing physical gestures as command input and providing sound as a feedback response to these actions. Wi-roni is urban furniture that aims to allow everyone to listen to Web-distributed audio content in a public area, bridging the gap between expert and non-expert users and favoring the dissemination of Internet culture. The work is part of a project that attempts to complement distance communication with in-presence communication and everywhere/everytime web resource availability with here and now preferred resource exploitation.
