We aim to support spontaneous and opportunistic human behavior by taking advantage of an emerging environment for mobile ubiquitous multimedia applications enabled by the fusion of adhoc networks; peer-to-peer computing; and media-rich mobile devices. Guided by an ethnographic study of spontaneous and opportunistic human behavior; a new concept; called the Bubble concept; is proposed that helps users navigate multimedia content made available in mobile ad-hoc networks. The concept is intended to guide the design of user interfaces that provide users with impulses that may trigger spontaneity and opportunism. We used the Bubble concept to design and implement a portable audio player application that provides music impulses to users. The application runs on WLAN-equipped iPAQs.

Keywords: Spontaneous behavior; ad-hoc networks; multimedia content; user interface
