Ubiquitous computing is a new area of computing which aims to serve people in order to perform daily tasks with less effort and much faster that they used to. Ubiquitous computing systems consist of numerous devices, which are embedded and hidden within the environment. This paper reports the current status of ubiquitous computing, by presenting technologies and applications that are used today. In addition, it describes research projects and prototypes that have been developed until today. Also, there are references about ongoing efforts. Finally, the paper presents several evaluation schemes for ubicomp, while there is still no unified framework.
