Point & Click-Interaction in Smart Environments
A problem in smart environments is the interaction with a myriad of different devices, in particular the selection which of the devices should be controlled. Typically, different devices require different control tools. In contrast, a generic Point & Click appliance is proposed. To interact with a device in the environment this generic control appliance is pointed at devices for selection providing visual feedback to the user, obtains control information from the device, and allows control with the help of a simple user interface.
