Social Display

The project introduce the concept of Social Display. The concept is designed to  increase awareness about the activities of mobile device users to others in physical surroundings through an extended display on the backside of the mobile devices.

The concept was early introduced as scenarios in focus group. Three scenarios were presented in the focus group as stimuli for discussion. The scenarios include different contexts the Social Display could be used: with family, with friends in a formal setting, with friends in a casual setting.

Mobile devices with screen captures of multiple applications are used as stimuli for participants to co-design the content of Social Display.
