Handheld and Ubiquitous Computing First International Symposium, HUC'99, Karlsruhe, Germany, September 27-29, 1999, Proceedings

Truly personal handheld and wearable technologies should be small and unobtrusive and allow access to information and computing most of the time and in most circumstance. Complimentary, environment-based technologies make artifacts of our surrounding world computationally accessible and facilitate u...
