Towards Atmospheric Interfaces
This study introduces a preliminary taxonomy to bring the condition of air into the foreground of human perception. To create this taxonomy, we drew on the foundations of atmospheric research and studies in the field of human-computer interaction to provide an overview of different inputs and outputs that enable an interaction with the air in the physical world. In addition, we present a potential use case that could benefit from a taxonomy to allow the development of atmospheric interfaces and empower the transfer of knowledge. We discuss our findings and conclude with challenges that can be addressed in future research. The figure depicts the preliminary taxonomy for atmospheric interfaces. The blue section illustrates atmospheric inputs, and the white section presents major research streams.
