A shikake, originally a Japanese word, is a trigger for behavior change. More precisely, a shikake is a perceived object that provides people an alternative attractive behavior choice.
For example, we constructed a lion head replica, and set up an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser inside the mouth. The lion is designed to recall The Mouth of Truth in Rome, Italy. When people encounter the lion, they feel like putting their hands in the lion’s mouth. As a result, their hands become clean.
Also, the stairs decorated like a piano, on which people can actually make a piano-like sound with their feet, attract people’s attention and encourage them to use the stairs rather than escalators.
The requirement of a shikake consists of three factors: fairness, attractiveness, and duality of purpose. Fairness ensures that no one faces any disadvantages. Attractiveness is a power to encourage people to change their behavior. Duality of purpose describes the situation that the purposes of users and that of providers are different. We use the capital letters (F, A, and D) and abbreviate these as FAD requirements. The two examples above satisfy FAD requirements.
We call for papers regarding such shikakes.
