This paper briefly shows how product designers as well as information
system designers may use the habitat framework as a
tool to inform their understanding of the pervasive computing
systems they are designing. This is done by (1) introducing the
basic elements of habitats, (2) analyzing and comparing two
empirical case-studies, one about life and death (emergency response at major incidents) and one about playfulness (children’s pervasive play and gaming), and (3) discussing the usefulness of using habitats. The result is a number of real-world examples where we argue that using habitats as a simple common ground seems to be useful for professionals coming from quite different traditions.
