CHI '09 Extended Abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Pages 3187-3192.


In this paper we present a system that simulates urgency-augmented phone calls on mobile phones. Different scenarios and interaction techniques are discussed. We report a user study that indicates a general need for such a system and explored the applicability of using a force sensor as a way of intuitive call urgency articulation. The proposed system allows trying out urgency-augmented phone calls hands-on
