There has been a lot of discussion in recent years around the disappearing computer concept and most of the results of that discussion have been realized in the form of mobile devices and applications. What has got lost a little in this discussion is the moves that have seen the miniaturization of sensors that can be wirelessly attached to places and to humans in order to provide a new type of free flowing interaction. In order to investigate what these new sensors could achieve and at what cost, we implemented a configurable, wearable motion-capture system based on wireless sensor nodes, requiring no special environment to operate in. We discuss the system architecture and discuss the implications and opportunities afforded by it for innovative HCI design.
