Delightful little presentation about how people make devices their own.
“What motivates people to customise their phones? Where are they customised? Why? And how can this influence the design of future devices?…It’s an example of quick-and-dirty research project (an afternoon collecting data by reviewing 6477 phone covers in a recycling plant) with a limited but interesting enough scope (document any physical customisation), that eventually led to researching a number of more meaty topics. It’s also an example of something that would never make it to an academic conference, but has proved relevant in day to day work. There’s a lesson there somewhere.”
