The Multimodal Contact List provides a mechanism to browse context information and communicate with friends in a contact list both visually and through touch and sound. Each contact can share with their friend group selected information on their current context such as mood and availability. Users are able to gain a quick overview of the context provided over all of their contacts, allowing them to close the loop with them via touch, audio, visual feedback or a combination of all three. A user can then progressively probe the contact for more detailed information, eventually allowing the user to open a real-time multimodal voice and tactile communication channel to the contact for verbal or discreet tactile communication.
