    Abstract

    In the HCI domain, many researches have been carried out on how to apply Persuasive Technology (PT) to stimulate a more active lifestyle. Regarding collectivist cultures, social influence has been considered as one of the most impactful factors among others in PT. Within one societal context, however, different individuals may need different motivational mechanisms based on social persuasion. In this paper, we designed the prototype ShuttleKickers embedding different social persuasive mechanisms to stimulate more physical activities in China. Subsequently, we conducted the field-test of our prototype with sportive groups and sedentary groups, identified by Transtheoretical Model, which results in a set of implications on how to apply social persuasions for active behaviours for these two different groups respectively.
