Ambient and Glanceable Displays

Ambient and glanceable displays and devices are a distinct category of information appliances that are designed to be integrated into the home and work environments. They convey minimum and specific information in a way that is designed to exploit the “preattentive” processing ability of the human brain. This enables users to absorb the information without having their attention distracted from foreground tasks.
