And a plea. And an ad. With this rant, plea, and ad, I hope to attract more attention to the video and interactivity submissions at CHI 2012. But that is just a means to an end. The result I hope for is to make our field influential in shaping a whole new wave of interactions through technologies, the likes of which we have never seen before. One day in my lab, my colleagues told me to touch an actuator they wanted to use. As my finger met the surface, it suddenly became extremely cold, and I pulled back in surprise. It was almost painful and very unexpected. How could this very small surface grow so cold, so fast? My research team smiled at me, recognizing my reaction from their own experiences experimenting with the Peltier element.
