[x3d-public] FW: 5th? in a series on the rise and demise ControllerCentered Computing

That’s the general idea, Leonard, computers moving into the background, with voice, gestures/video making the computer active.
So if one’s wife suddenly screams, should one treat it as passive input, or activate?
I need an “OK Google” command I think.
Continuous versus discrete input, I guess.

Not sure what you are trying to get to/at here.
On the topic of looking for a non-command passive input. Is the audio monitoring by your (real) phone for "OK Google" an example of non-command passive input? The command is "OK Google", but there is a lot of "listening" that happens waiting for the command. It seems like there is continual input processing and very little makes it past the "OK Google" filter, which generates a command (event) to the OS.
Model-View-Controller (from Smalltalk) Discussion aka
Very boring, except for passive ambient input discussion (non-command controllers).
So this is stepping up a level into systems of paradigms (paradigms being view, controller, model, and processing) so around 14-15 in the hierarchy of complexity, 16 being max’ed out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_of_hierarchical_complexity#Stages_of_hierarchical_complexity

Not sure where this fits
So controllers are moving away from typical to atypical inputs. Controller input *might* be converted into commands. I am trying to deal with the cases where controller input is NOT converted to commands. Can we list them? What do we call controller input which isn’t commands? Is there a term for it? Ambient input? Here’s a use of the term: https://blog.joshlewis.org/2007/03/22/passive-ambient-input/
How do we collect and analyze these inputs? Your feedback on these subjects (research papers welcome) is desired. Jeffrey Allen suggested that computers might move into the background, nearly invisible, and things might work off of gestures.
How might X3D create a sensor for passive ambient input that is processed in a non-event fashion, except when some condition is met. What design might we implement for passive ambient input? One example might be to lower the output from the stereo when I’m talking on the phone. Constrained input might be a term for it that is more typical. How might constrained input be implemented with Sensors (no I haven’t read the standard!)
