Abstract

The live video streaming market is, as some research suggests, a difficult one to develop. Comparing it to other media it has the disadvantage of being available during a limited period of time. This thesis explores how mobile devices can be used as an explorative tool through live video streaming. The opportunity of control in the moment is studied and examined in this report. This research will suggest a mobile device platform in which people can assist other people exploring new environments around the globe. It also tries to evaluate whether this exploring interaction can occur between unacquainted people and at the same time not be hindered by any language barriers. The motivation behind this subject is the human need and curiosity of exploring new environments and places.

The foundation of the research approach was based on interaction design principles and methods. This created a chain of methods used with the intent of better understanding what is to be considered when designing for live video experiences focusing on environments. The process lead to important understandings and key aspects to be considered when designing live experiences focusing on environments. The results that emerged, showed that the most important encouragement is; to be presented with an environment that includes novel elements. Further more, the results could also conclude that by giving access to directional controls, and some means of expressing appreciation, can help to influence and shape exploration with live video.

Research question:

- How can exploration be encouraged between unacquainted users using live video and mobile devices?
