Ubiquitous computing will change the way we live with technology. As Mark Weiser stated: "The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it" [3]. We don't think of pencils or hinges or faucets as technology. They are just simply features of the world we take for granted and shape the way we act in the world. With ubiquitous computing, using information technology will progressively feel more like using these everyday objects than using personal computers.
