|Title:||PHIDGETS: INCORPORATING PHYSICAL DEVICES INTO THE INTERFACE|
|Abstract:||Physical widgets, or phidgets, comprise devices and software that are almost direct analogs of graphical user interface widgets. Like widgets, phidgets abstract and package input and output devices: they hide implementation and construction details while exposing functionality through a well-defined API. They also have an (optional) on-screen interface. Phidgets also require: a connection manager to track how devices appear on-line; a way to link a software phidget with its physical counterpart; and a simulation mode to allow the programmer to develop, debug and test a system using phidgets even when no physical device is present.|
