Abstract:We live in a world of continuous information over ow, but the quality of information and communication is suering. Single value devices contribute to information and communication quality by focussing on one explicit, relevant piece of information. The information is decoupled from a computer and represented in an object, integrated into daily life. The contribution of this paper is on dierent levels: Firstly, we identify single value devices as a class, and, secondly, illustrate it through examples in a survey. Thirdly, we collect characterizations of single value devices into a taxonomy. The taxonomy also provides a collection of design choices that allow one to more easily nd new combinations or alternatives, and that facilitate the design of new, meaningful, eective and working objects. Finally, when we want to step from experimental examples to commercializable products, a number of issues become relevant that are identied and discussed in the remainder of this paper.
