G. in bars, cafes, or other public spaces), where our concept can also be deployed. Fig. 5. Participants interacting with WeApplaud Before the tests, the mobile application was installed through ad-hoc deployment in the mobile devices handed by the users. The test sessions were conducted by two researchers, who played the roles of facilitator and observer. The first one had a more active role, giving an initial briefing and instructions to the participants and providing assistance for any problems that users might face.

2) This equation means that the rotation of the motor increases with depression of the motor’s rotation caused by the thumb’s pressure (which is equal to the difference between the rotation rate of motor R and the actual rotation rate Ractual extracted by the rotary encoder). The constant a determines the weight of the thumb’s pressure effect, which was adjusted by another preliminary study. We also considered supplying the users with auditory feedback. At first we thought that it was necessary to generate a paper-flipping sound using a speaker.

To evaluate the entertainment experienced by users, we also asked them to rate two statements using a five-point Likert-type scale. The statements were aimed to acknowledge if, by experiencing this activity, users felt more involved in the stadium atmosphere, and if the competition enhanced the level of entertainment during the broadcasted match. To capture users’ feelings and study their emotional involvement with the prototype, a question based on the Microsoft “Product Reaction Cards” [17], was included, since this method facilitates the measuring of intangible aspects of the user experience.
