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 www.probetools.net, 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.
