In the vision of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing, smart environments play an important role. Within these environments, everyday objects are augmented with new functionalities and services. In the scope of this vision, once these functionalities and services are integrated into real world objects, the question arises on how they can be discovered and consumed? So, how is the knowledge about the objects' smartness made accessible to users again? This work presents a magic lens approach, called UbiLens that supports users in a smart environment to scan for functions and services. The contribution of this work is the presentation of a conceptual evaluation of different interaction features, which was performed with a mixture of a physical handheld device and a paper prototype.
