UBIQUITY CLASSICS: Reflections on Challenges to the Goal of Invisible Computing http://www.acm.org/ubiquity/views/v6i17_tripathi.html

By Arun Kumar Tripathi

Computing seems to be everywhere. But where exactly are all the computers doing that computing? They are hidden away, just out of sight, within films, games, cars, clouds, mobile phones, and much more. Getting computers to be hidden and stay hidden is a major design challenge. It took many years to get to our current point, and will undoubtedly take many more years to perfect and refine. In May 2005, Arun Tripathi reflected on this challenge. His words are as relevant today as they were then.
