SIME@Mobile Life

SIME checked out the opening of the Mobile Life Centre at Stockholm University in Kista, Sweden. The industry partners for the lab are Ericsson, TeliaSonera, Sony Ericsson AB and Microsoft Research Ltd. We got several interesting demos of services for the future mobile life. A theme that will be discussed at several of the panels at SIME 2007.

SIME Reporter Beata Wickbom and Coffe Sandberg, The company P.

Examples: 1. The pervasive game creator - an on-line system for developing and running your own pervasive game. (Demonstrated by Researcher Staffan Jonsson).

2. The Affective Diary - a dairy where bodily memorabilia (collected by a body sensor) and mobile media data are mixed into a sort of "mood diary". (Demonstrated by Anna Ståhl)

3. Hot Potato - a new pervasive game created for Bluetooth-enabled phones. In summary: the player who has carried the most potatoes for the longest time wins the game. (Demonstrated by Annica Waern).
