Direct interaction with everyday objects augmented with artificial affordances may be an approach to HCI capable of leveraging natural human capabilities. Rich Gold described in the past ubiquitous computing as an "enchanted village" in which people discover hidden affordances in everyday objects that act as "human interface "prompt[s]" (R. Gold, "This is not a pipe." Commun. ACM 36, July 1993.). In this project we explore the reverse scenario: a ubiquitous intelligence capable of discovering and instantiating affordances suggested by human beings(as mimicked actions and scenarios involving objects and drawings). Miming will prompt the ubiquitous computing environment to "condense" on the real object, by supplementing it with artificial affordances through common AR techniques. An example: taking a banana and bringing it closer to the ear. The gesture is clear enough: directional microphones and parametric speakers hidden in the room would make the banana function as a real handset on the spot.
