Ubiquitous computing (also called everyware)

[is] [t]he method of enhancing computer use by making many computers available throughout the physical environment, but making them effectively invisible to the user.[1]
involves having computing devices essentially everywhere in the home, office or public area, as well as easy, natural ways for people to interact with them.[2]
