Dear CHI community,

I would like to draw your attention to my forthcoming book, which I think some of you will find very relevant for teaching as well as research:

Lars Erik Holmquist:
Grounded Innovation - Strategies for Creating Digital Products

The book gives a practical guide to how you can be innovative and user-oriented when creating computer-based products - including everything from mobile web pages to robots, and passing location-based services, context-aware cameras, informative artworks and much more on the way. It draws on world-leading research in ubiquitous computing, human-computer interaction and user interface design, as well as on case studies from many major companies. It is unique in that it combines a hands-on perspective on innovation processes with deep technical knowledge. I think it would be useful for students, designers, entrepreneurs, researchers, or just anyone who tries to create the "next big thing" in tech!

The book is in stock now at Amazon, and the Kindle edition is coming May 15!

Please also visit the companion blog, where I write about case studies from the book as well as other notable events in the area!

Finally, I will be available at the CHI conference in Austin if you want to meet or have a personalized copy of the book!

Best regards,


Lars Erik Holmquist
