After five years, the Mobile Life Centre has grown to be about 45 researchers, exploring experiential, leisure and playful mobile and ubiquitous interactions. The research is interdisciplinary, involving researchers from computer science, interaction design, sociology, psychology but also game designers, artists, dancers, and fashion experts. Our research focuses on designing innovative new mobile systems. We use technologies to understand people better, and through understanding people better design better technologies.
A recent focus of research at Mobile Life has been how we can build for the 'enjoyment society', our vision of technology designed so as to enhance the pleasure we experience when using active, engaged, embodied technologies. All current research are colour coded in orange!
Through our past research we have built up a formidable archive of findings, research papers, patents and systems that are still original and cutting-edge. All archived research are colour coded in purple!
