Wearable computing means a paradigm shift: instead of working at the computer users are supported by computing systems in their primary tasks. Currently wearable computing is still a technology of niches and in a laboratory stage. However, with wearIT@work a project dedicated to applications was launched by the European Commission (EC IP 004216). The first 30 months of this project are over and industrial demonstrators, evaluations and results are available. In this paper results of the second development cycle are presented. The influence of the strong end user involvement in the design process led to results in the four application domains of maintenance, production, healthcare and emergency response with a maturity beyond simple prototypes.
