U.F.O.scope! - Families Playing Together at the Public Library
Paper in proceedings, 2010

This paper investigates how interaction design installations can support families playing together in the context of public libraries. The interactive installation U.F.O. scope is presented as a mean to investigate how the library can support children and parents playing together. The idea of the installation is to stimulate the lust for families to explore the unknown together on unfamiliar ground, while also discovering the physical library and its different types of resources. The design and evaluation of the installation are discussed, and some general issues central for future design are outlined.
