We explore shared collocated interactions with mobile phones and public displays in an indoor public place. We introduce MobiComics, an application that allows a group of collocated persons to flexibly create and edit comic strip panels using their mobile phones. The prototype supports ad hoc sharing of comic strip panels between people and onto two public displays by taking the spatial arrangement of people into account, measured with a radio tracking technology integrated in their mobile phones. MobiComics also includes game-like elements to foster social interaction between participants. Our evaluations show that people enjoyed creating panels collaboratively and sharing content using the proposed interaction techniques. The included game-like features positively influenced social interaction.
