Bursting the Mobile Bubble is a design program (i.e. design approach) aiming at designing collaborative, co-located experiences using mobile devices. In our research we have chosen to explore this field via games and gameplay design, since games open up the design space and allow for design solutions that may seem unusual at first but soon become mainstream. The issues we have found to be interesting arise from combining several connected devices: the division of private vs. public information… 
Butter It! - A collocated game
TLDR
Butter It!, a multiplayer game for iOS that encourages people to interact with collocated individuals via their mobile phones, while an iPad serves as the virtual stick of butter that players scoop.
The CoCe Design Space: Exploring the Design Space for Co-Located Collaborative Games that Use Multi-Display Composition
TLDR
By applying the CoCe design space with game instances, this paper illustrates how it can be used both as an analytic tool for analysis of games and also as a generative tool in the design or re-design of cooperative games that use multi-display composition.
WeWave - a Collocated Cheering Application
TLDR
This paper explores how to subtly break down the social barriers through a mobile game application based on the simple gesture of lifting a finger based on Lundgren et al.
TurnApp55 - The Social Music App

TLDR
The design of the Off the Cuff mobile application aimed to support face-to-face interaction is presented, based on playful exercises used in improvisation theater.
Reflecting on the Study of Mobile Collocated Interactions: The Changing Face of Wearable Devices
TLDR
This position paper discusses some of existing qualitative methodologies employed in observational studies of mobile collocated interactions, and questions the suitability of these approaches with respect to the changing form that devices can take.

A Review of Mobile Location-based Games for Learning across Physical and Virtual Spaces
TLDR
This paper reviews mobile location-based games for learning, focusing on their narrative structure, the interaction modes that they afford, their use of physical space as prop for action, the way this is linked to virtual space and the possible learning impact the game activities have.
