The Networked Mobilities Lab (NML) at NC State University (NCSU) promotes interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research on mobilities enabled by mobile and networked technologies. With a special focus on urban settings, we aim at understanding the different ways people, spaces and mobile networked technologies are interconnected in contemporary society.

MGRL Physical Collection

We are proud to present our physical collection of retro mobile games. Our collection consists of popular gaming consoles used throughout 1975 to 2008. Examples of some of the consoles you might see in our collection include the GameBoy and Nintendo DS to name a few. We would love to grow our collection as we accept donations from anyone willing to part with their old consoles. For more details email us at mobilegaminglab@ncsu.edu and check out our Retro Mobile Gaming Database here Database.



This focus includes, but is not limited to exploring how urban mobilities are intertwined with, differential and sustainable mobilities. We also focus on locative media, mobile creativity, mobile art, mobile games, and histories of mobile technologies.

Goals: 

  • Contribute to the interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research on networked mobilities and mobile communication with a particular focus on global and intercultural practices;
  • Offer interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate courses about networked mobilities and mobile communication cultures;
  • Develop open-access research projects that increase awareness for both public and academic audiences about the significance of networked mobilities and mobile communication cultures;
  • Foster global and/or inter-institutional collaborations with scholars interested in networked mobilities and mobile cultures.
