In the last twenty years, the widespread adoption of personal, mobile computing devices in everyday life has allowed entry into a new technological era in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). The constant change of the physical and social context in a user’s situation made possible by the portability of mobile devices means that the user’s attention becomes limited, which can negatively impact their experience. To deal with this problem, Abdallah El Ali draws from two developments in HCI, context-awareness and 3D gestural input. From these developments, Ali introduces the concept of minimal mobile HCI, a subset of eyes-free mobile interaction that allows minimal combination of the visual modality with other sensory modalities to improve the user experience of interacting with smartphones.
