Abstract

This paper coins the term to refer to the class of small exchanges between devices that occur almost instantaneously. For example, a mobile payment using near-field communication (NFC) is a micro-interaction. The arrival of NFC on smart phones makes possible a wide array of applications using micro-interactions, from sharing photos between a phone and a TV to checking a car into a valet parking service by touching two phones.
