Local issues, local uses

Carl DiSalvo, Marti Louw, Julina Coupland, MaryAnn Steiner
2009 Proceeding of the seventh ACM conference on Creativity and cognition - C&C '09  
This paper describes six creativity support tools we developed to foster community engagement and expression with robotics and sensing, assessing the benefits and shortcomings of each tool.  ...  From the descriptions of these tools and their uses, we highlight two issues. The first is the challenge of, and a general strategy for, enabling informed speculation with unfamiliar technologies.  ...  • Communication: What do you want to communicate through your robot? How should people feel or respond to your robot?  ...
