With the increasing number of IoT devices pervading our everyday surroundings there also emerges the desire of interlinking devices and creating processes among them for automation purposes. This “programming” of IoT environments currently requires a high level of technical expertise and abstraction capabilities, which hinders end-users from adapting these new technologies. We present HoloFlows–an approach for end-user oriented IoT process development in augmented reality– consisting of a simple modeling language and an intuitive user interface with natural interactions. HoloFlows showed an increased efficiency and user experience as well as steep learning curve for non-experts in a user study and maybe one way of programming the smart home and IoT of the future.
