The product requires the presence of two or more smartphones to function and rewards users the longer they forego their devices with more interesting games and activities. These activities are physically printed out, bringing us back to the immutable qualities of paper, and giving us a respite from the infinitely changing screens that surround us. The games in TOTEM can also be programmed to vary with location, number of players and use context. In the future TOTEM could also be programmed to remember whether a group had played before and adjust the game accordingly, providing new levels and new goals to reach together.
