Abstract: Next generation computers will owe more to mobile phones than to PCs, and the applications will be completely different because they will be with you all the time rather than confined to the office desk.Because of mobility, much of the interface will be voice: -- not just words, but prosidy, stress, and conversational type --- and the device will know a great deal about your personal style and current context.. I will describe a series of new computer platforms and applications developed by my students and myself during the last two years that make use of such hands-free, smart interfaces. Examples include spacesuits, high fashion, games for kids, medical monitors, and tools for enhancing rural life.
