In this position article we argue that it is time for the mobile HCI community to think beyond the traditional screen-keyboard-mouse paradigm and explore the many possibilities that mobility, mobile platforms, and people on the move offer. We present a collection of ideas aiming to encourage HCI researchers to explore how up-and-coming mobile technologies can inspire new interaction models, alternative I/O methods, and data collection methods. The range of possible applications designed to make life easier for specified user populations is limited, we maintain, only by our imagination to understand novel problem spaces, to mix, match and expand on existing methods as well as to invent, test, and validate new methods. We present several case studies in an attempt to demonstrate such possibilities for future mobile HCI.
