This project is a qualitative study of non-textual mobile communication practices in Southern China. Examining the rapid proliferation of emoji in WeChat use, we attend to the lessening dependence on a text. We use interview and observation data from 30 participants to investigate how rural, small town and urban Chinese adults creatively and innovatively balance the use of emoji and text in their communication, as we envision the evolution of emoji into a modality of its own.
Indoor navigation has always been a difficult problem to crack due to the weakness of GPS signals indoor and loss of orientation references such as the sun, signature buildings, and landmarks. TSRB is a multi-functional building located in the heart of tech square, where lots of seminars, labs, networking events and classes are held. Not only do lots of new students and faculties come to TSRB when a new semester begins, but many visitors also come over frequently. Many of them encountered navigation difficulties when they first entered the building.
Working with brick-and-mortar venues to deploy and optimize printed signage within poster stands embedded with facial detection sensors. A methodology for monitoring, evaluating, and actioning insights derived from remote monitoring is proposed and tested. The methodology takes parallels from agile digital development processes to continually test and refine designs based on a constant flow of data reflecting real user behaviors.
