Abstract or Description

TaskCams are simple digital cameras designed for studies of users and their contexts. Researchers and practitioners can build their own TaskCams using instructions and videos from, off-the-shelf parts, and a custom Arduino shield made available from the site. There is a myriad of options for customisation and modification, allowing researchers to adopt and adapt them to their needs. We view the open-source distribution of TaskCams as a novel approach to disseminating a research methodology.
In this demonstration we show a number of completed 3D-printed and Paper TaskCams, and demonstrate how to assemble them using the resources available from the project website.
