Abstract or Description

We consider the increasingly blurred boundaries
between what has been termed the online/offline binary
through a discussion of the design and first stage
implementation of a ubiquitous ALife project,
TechnoSphere 2.0. This series of Android applications
(apps) use augmented reality, GPS, 2D and 3D printing
to create mixed reality environments in which the lives,
artificial and otherwise, of people and online creatures,
as well as online and offline spaces, are blended. The
design of these apps is situated in the specific
ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) environment, the
milieu, of Hong Kong and South East Asia.
