This approach situates activity theoryin a design and design research context (i.e. not HCI and education). In doingso, I highlight the importance of how making, reflection and understandingworking with new tools, materials, technologies and interactions needs to betaken up in activity theory. This is the direction Engeström (2009) goes in hisargument for 'wildfire' and the Journal of Mind Culture and Activity hasmoved in looking to extended activity theory beyond the domains of workand learning. Design is not typically taken up outside of computing in this'tradition.'In the published articles a number of theoretical and practical developmentshave been presented. Following is a short summary of these results:1. RFID-driven tap and hold describes tangible interactions madepossible using an RFID-enabled phone and one RFID tag. Theconcept expands upon the common notion that SR-RFID is used forselect interactions and shows a much richer design space (Nordby &Morrison, 2010).2. The tap and hold model contains a set of basic components of tapand hold-based inputs and shows how they relate to each other. Thetap and hold model may be used to analyse tap and hold inputs andhelp the design of new ones (Nordby & Morrison, 2010).3. Twenty tap and hold input techniques have been shown. Thesecomprise a set of possible input techniques derived from the tap andhold model. The techniques may be used directly in the design ofnew SR-RFID-driven tangible interactions (Nordby & Morrison,2010).4. Near-field material is presented as a subset of SR-RFID technology.Near field-material help designers focus on central aspects that areunique to SR-RFID when designing.5. Multi-field relations is a concept that shows how the relationshipsbetween multiple near-fields may be used to understand inputs(Nordby, 2011).6. Multi-field relations model presents four types of multi-fieldrelations. These may be used to analyse and design multi-fieldinputs (Nordby, 2011).7. Eleven multi-field input techniques have been presented. These arepossible input techniques that are described by the multi-fieldrelations model. The techniques may be further used as componentsthat may be used in designing new SR-RFID-driven interactions(Nordby, 2011).8. Form-making qualities are introduced as a concept that shows thedifferent types of transformations a designer may impose on amaterial (Nordby, 2010).9. Six form-making qualities have been presented. These qualitiesshow different ways SR-RFID may be transformed in design. The63
