Most mobile games are designed for users to only focus on their own screens thus lack of face-to-face interaction even users are sitting together. Past work shows that the shared information space created by multiple mobile devices can encourage users communicate to each other naturally. The aim of this work is to provide a fluent view-stitching technique to help mobile phone users establish their information-shared view. We present MagMobile: a new spatial interaction technique that allows users to stitch views by simply putting multiple mobile devices close to each other. We describe the design of spatial-aware sensor module and tailor-made magnetic sensor units which are low cost, easy to be obtained into phones. We also propose two collaborative games to engage social interactions in the co-located place.
