The Responsive Objects, Surfaces, and Spaces (ROSS) API is a way for tangible applications to operate seamlessly across a variety of tangible input devices and platforms. It allows applications to exchange information about the devices they are running on and obtain real-time data about tangible and touch interactions with other devices. In a ROSS world, you can use your mobile phone as a controller to play games on the digital coffee table in your living room; and your guests can join in with their phones too.

The exhibit and interactive installation will be located at the APEX (African-American Panoramic Experience) Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.
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.
