Towards Rapid Technology Probes for Senior People [chapter]

Florian Güldenpfennig, Geraldine Fitzpatrick
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We lay out four prototypes of communication technologies with different forms and functions for older adults.  ...  In this paper we exploit the potential of smart phones and tablet computers to create a series of technology probes that we deploy long-term making use of close family members.  ...  To emphasize this, we introduce the concept of rapid technology probes (RTP) and argue, that mobile phone or tablet computer powered technology probes are an adequate and timely technique for the design  ...

How probes work

2007 Proceedings of the 2007 conference of the computer-human interaction special interest group (CHISIG) of Australia on Computer-human interaction: design: activities, artifacts and environments - OZCHI '07  
We then reorient the discussion around Probes towards how probes work: both as interpretative fodder for social scientists and as a resource for 'designers'.  ...  Cultural probes', since first being proposed and described by Bill Gaver and his colleagues, have been adapted and appropriated for a range of purposes within a variety of technology projects.  ...  The directness of the mapping between the probe returns and the designs can vary, but both inspired designs and we can relate and describe how they inspired.  ...
