CommunityMirrors are large interactive screens (ambient displays) that make content, that usually is hidden in computer systems, visible in public or semi-public spaces. In the Human-Computer-Interaction group at Universität der Bundeswehr München we work on design recommendations for CommunityMirrors and CommunityMirror networks – and operate such CommunityMirror networks for long term evaluation.

For more Information in CommunityMirrors see our publications. German only information can also be found on the public wiki service of the HCI group at
