This website describes a project in Ubiquitous Computing held at the IT-University
in Gothenburg during the autumn term of 2003. The project is a part of
a Masters program in Interaction Design given by the IT
University in Gothenburg, a joint campus between Chalmers
University of Technology and Gothenburg
computing as a concept was developed by Mark Weiser in the late 1980’s.
It is also called invisible computing, as the interface is no longer a
traditional screen and keyboard. In Ubiquitous Computing, technology can
be used everywhere - even in a toothbrush!
ambition was to create an artifact that children would use in their every
day lives. The idea was to create a toothbrush for children that would
motivate them to brush their teeth. This resulted in a musical toothbrush.
The project has evolved in small steps and many iterations. To be honest
we are very pleased with the result!
