SSI · Social & Spatial Interactions

Mobile phones were originally conceived and have traditionally been utilized for individual use. In Western culture, we are not supposed to go into another person’s mobile phone and go through their list of contacts, photos, or visited websites. On occasion, people may pass their phones around and let others look at photos.

The Social and Spatial Interactions (SSI) project looks into situations in which collocated users engage in collaborative activities using their mobile devices by asking the following question: are people willing to share their mobile devices and engage in collaborative interactions?
