Other aspects in Mobile and Kinetic User Interfaces are those related to the new interaction patterns that will be enabled by the availability of traceable objects for performing actions on computer systems. Ubiquitous and Mobile computing enables a new kind of User Interfaces. These interfaces rely on different metaphors and interaction patterns than those on which classical Desktop and Web interfaces are designed. Now the interface is distributed in space. Motion of objects and people can be used to interact with physical places enriched with digital appliances. Moreover, these interfaces include modalities that are typically not under the conscious control of the user such as motion, gesture, heartbeat, temperature, and sweat. Through wearable sensor and smart objects technology, all these inputs can be easily collected and used for interaction.
