Abstrakt

With the recent increase in sales figures of tablet computers, a corresponding boost of mobile media consumption on such devices can be observed. Even though tablets provide a com- parably larger screen in contrast to smartphones — which are taking the main share of mobile media consumption — the experience of consuming media content on tablets is still lim- ited. For movie theaters the notion of 4 dimensional (4D) films exist, describing a 3D movie that is enhanced with am- bient feedback such as environmental light, air streams or moist. In this paper we present ambiPad , a tablet proto- type that enriches mobile digital media with ambient feed- back around the tablet’s display. Besides a light emitting frame, ambiPad allows for thermal stimuli as well. We re- port on the results of a qualitative user study, in which the feedback channels of ambiPad were rated as highly attractive and desirable by the participants.
