Thesis Topic: iStuff Mobile - Rapidly prototyping novel interaction for mobile phones
The Master thesis involved development of iStuff Mobile. iStuff Mobile is a rapid prototyping platform that helps explore novel interactions with mobile phones. It combines sensor network platforms, mobile phone software, and a proven rapid prototyping framework. Interaction designers can use the framework to quickly create and test novel interactions without making internal hardware modifications to the handset. The technology used is Smart-Its and Nokia Series 60 SDK on Visual Studio.
