Doing the dodo - a collocated app for household chores
Paper i proceeding, 2015

Doing chores can be a source for stress and arguments in households. The felt responsibility for such chores can have negative effects on our health. The idea of collocational technology can be used to provide for a basis of shared responsibility for the execution of chores, as it can help communication and the feeling of togetherness. This paper describes the work of a project that sets out to create a mobile app to support households in joint ownership and responsibility of chores, as well as equal distribution and commitment. The paper describes the route taken and design choices made in order to create this app. The result was a mobile app for use during household meetings that randomly distributes chores among household members and allows them to exchange these chores with each other via the use of an in-app resource
