About CIO

The Common Interactive Objects (CIO) project is concerned with offering new ways for people to construct and configure human physical and virtual environments, together, over time and within communities. The main objectives of CIO project are to:

  1. Develop the conception of common interactive objects in order to offer a new understanding of human-computer interaction, focusing on human control.
  2. Develop support for building user interfaces in a coherent and unified framework.
  3. Make common interactive objects that will empower users to better understand and develop the technologies they use.
  4. Carry out ground-breaking research regarding the technological basis of common interactive objects with focus on malleability, control and shareability over time.

CIO is methodologically rooted in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and the research methods combine empirical, analytical, theoretical, and design approaches, all with focus on the relationship between common interactive objects and their human users. The CIO project stands at the beginning of a five year effort to rethink and redo human-computer interaction.
