Abstract

The Information Jukebox is a digital enquiry kiosk aimed at browsing media files. It combines a novel gesture-based and hands-free interface with an expressive graphical user interface and an attractive physical design. The system was developed within the context of a media arts exhibition and thus had to meet both functional and semiotic requirements. Unlike comparable systems it offers a complete and playful solution for browsing media.
