Designing & evaluating location-based / contextually-aware digital services for use within public spaces

Mobile Bristol was a joint project founded by HP Labs, Bristol University and the Appliance Studio that developed a city-wide experimental test-bed for technology and user research in pervasive mobile media. I joined the project as a student intern at HP Labs where I created a rather eccentric location-based game that used GPS tracking as a control mechanism.

Partners: Appliance Studio, Hewlett Packard & University of Bristol.
