Mads Bødker, Denmark
Copenhagen Business School

Mads Bødker works as an Assistant Professor at the Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. His primary research areas is within the fields of human-computer interaction and interaction design. While focusing on the domain of tourism, his current work challenges previous work in IT and HCI by focussing on experiential and sensory aspects of tourism. Inspired by human geography and phenomenology, his work emphasizes the understanding of tourist places as performances, and attempts to draw design inspiration from place-oriented research methods.

"I am a camera": Using Egocentric Point-of-view to inspire.
We present Egocentric point-of-view (Ego-pov) video and a working prototype of a research tool called iAmACam, using smartphones as a data-capture device. The tool consists of an iPhone hanging from a visitors neck, capturing time-lapse photos, sound, and GPS-data. The prototype currently produces short slideshows based on accompanied 15-20 minute strolls with visitors on different locations. In the presentation, we address questions related to the applicability of the method in early-stage design work, as well conceptual and methodological underpinnings related to both tourist research and interaction design research. We surmise that Ego-pov using iAmACam can be a useful tool for understanding how, when, where, and why to provide e.g. location-based services in tourist settings.

  4. 4. Outline • Present the motivation for developing iMaCam, theory and conceptual landscape • Present the app and the web interface • Suggest some perspectives on why our tool and method are interesting • Suggest some application areas and open the discussion Mads Bødker > Dept. of IT Management > Copenhagen Business School > mb.itm@cbs.dkTuesday, October 2, 2012
  5. 5. Our motivations • Most mobile and ubicomp concept work has merely used tourism as a convenient domain • Tourism as an obvious domain because of: • Geographical displacement • Information needs/guiding • Mobility/being on-site Mads Bødker > Dept. of IT Management > Copenhagen Business School > mb.itm@cbs.dkTuesday, October 2, 2012
