Peripheral displays are an important class of ubiquitous computing applications. However, the field has suffered from a lack of clear, consistent terminology surrounding peripheral display research. We present an Activity Theory analysis of peripheral displays in order to establish common terminology and meaning for peripheral displays. We also present an Activity Theory-based approach for designing and evaluating peripheral displays.
