Designing a Study Concerning the Functions of Sharable Personal Memories

User support for shopping trips is a vivid area of research. With respect to the increasing use of sensor technology in this domain, it is of interest how a user may benefit from automatically captured data describing her or other people's shopping actions. In this article, we report on a study concerning the sharing of so-called digital memories during grocery shopping. Our report comprises a brief description of a software-based shopping environment used to observe and support users, a discussion of our hypotheses regarding the application of digital memories in this setting, the study method, and a first preview on results achieved this way
