Abstract

There is evidence that the public are learning to either ignore or actively avoid public displays. While most research has focused on addressing this issue by increasing the perceived value of the content shown we have been inspired by the strong bind between mobile phones and their users to explore an alternative approach, i.e. to encourage viewers to form emotional attachments with displays. In this paper we report on our early studies that explore this idea in a real-world testbed.
