As a general rule, staring contests are best when the other person participating is aware of it. However, the premise of the Soulfill app is based on the exact opposite of this and challenges users to lock eyes with strangers on one of the most uncomfortable places possible—public transit.

Instead of having people stare at their phones to avoid eye contact with strangers, Little Wins developed an app that would force people to look at one another, as socially awkward as that may be in a closed space.

Users are guided through the Soulfill app experience by audio and minimal graphics, where you're part of a mission to bring life to the soulless creatures and their empty stares that surround you. The premise is uncomfortable and a little creepy, but it could add some unusual interaction on your daily commute.
