FFF Seminar - Andrés Lucero - 9 April 2021
Co-Designed, Collocated & Playful Interactions
Abstract: Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets were originally conceived and have traditionally been utilized for individual use. Early research on mobile collocated interactions often encouraged people to share their devices to create a collective experience or reach a common goal. Most first-wave mobile collocated interactions research looked at the use of smartphones (and tablets) and tended to be device-centric, while a current second wave that focuses on the increasing popularity of wearables is experience-centric. In this talk I will discuss the co-design approach and methods used to create collocated and playful interactions, and present future directions for a third wave of research on mobile collocated interactions.
