pervasive computing

The use of computing devices in everyday life, not only at a desk. Also called "ubiquitous computing," it includes laptops, tablets, smartphones, wearable devices, appliances and sensors. Pervasive computing implies that people are not necessarily aware of every information-gathering unit surrounding them. See pervasive workplace and Internet of Things.
