Abstract

Traditional interaction method on mobile device often causes notification stress. Several research projects based on the software approach were attempted but it is not always perfect solution. In this design work, we propose a new interaction method with Interactive Smart Cover. This mobile device accessory adds a new notification channel as well as protects device. We extend its potential to future devices such as smartwatch. Future applicability of the accessory and its limitation will be discussed as well.
