The Mobile Experience Lab at the Ontario College of Art & Design is hosting an open house for the OCAD community and the professional design community as an opportunity to present the innovative research on cell phone experience done by the Portage research team.

Experience design on cell phones means much more than screen interfaces and ring tones. Emerging location sensitive phones and two-way multimedia is positioning the mobile platform as the successor to the Internet. Participatory and social experiences will overtake game playing and storytelling.

The researchers at Portage are currently creating a virtual streetscape theatre in downtown Toronto. A range of interactive experiences will be knit together and accessible through the mediation of the cell phone.

Come and see some working prototypes and participate in a dialogue about the future of mobile design.

So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
