Emotional design is the secret sauce of many successful products. It can make all the difference between a good product and one that users talk about to everyone. Think of a digital product you love and have raved about to your friends. Often, in this crowded market, these products are not one of a kind — there are competitors who offer almost identical functionality. So why do you prefer one over the other? It’s more than what the product does, it’s how the product makes you feel. Usually, when we think about the role emotions play in the marketplace, we…

There has recently been an explosion of interest around the application of mobile communication technologies to support health initiatives in developing countries (mHealth). As a result, there is a need to promote and share rigorous research for better informed policy, programming, and investment. There are, however, few platforms for the exchange of information and proven practice between practitioners and researchers.
The subtopic of prevention, well-being, and health promotion within mHealth is particularly ripe for deeper exploration. While many reports tout the potential of mobiles to influence behaviour change for health, there is limited knowledge about what works (and what does not work), and about how to evaluate current and future programs. This is a focused edited volume with contributions from leading researchers and practitioners to identify best practices in using mobile technologies to promote healthy behaviours (and reduce unhealthy ones) in resource-constrained settings with a special focus on developing countries.
This topic is inherently interdisciplinary. Though the opportunities to leverage mobile phones for health are new, the challenges confronting researchers and practitioners are well-established and theoretically complex, with roots in decades of work on mediated behaviour change campaigns and theories.

There’s nothing quite like it for outdoor visibility, and even away from sunlight there’s something to be said for a display that doesn’t suck much power or blast light in your face.

The YotaPhone, an Android phone with a secondary display on the back, is the most advanced example of this so far, and there have been a few efforts to develop iPhone cases with similar functionality — a company called Popslate recently shut down after hitting problems with its latest model.
This leaves Oaxis as the…
