The Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Awards is an international competition arranged by MindTrek, Nokia and Tampere Region Centre of Expertise in Ubiquitous Computing, and the NAMU research group.

 

The purpose of the competition is to encourage makers of digital media to generate ideas and develop new and innovative ubimedia products & services. The entries are expected to take a stand on the following questions, for example:

 

    * How does ubiquitous computing affect media environments?
    * What are intelligent media environments like?
    * What will the location- and context-aware media services of the future be like?

 

A few other examples are:

•              Pervasive and ubiquitous games

•              Ambient installations

•              Artistic works related to ubiquitous media and computation

•              Business models

•              Ambient and ubiquitous media technology

•              Ubiquitous and ambient media services, devices, and environments

•              Context aware, sensing, and interfaces for ubiquitous computation

•              Ergonomics, human-computer interaction designs, and product prototypes

•              Software, hardware and middleware framework demonstrations

•              Ambient television
