We present a menu interface designed primarily for head-worn displays that have a small field-of-view. To support interaction with a hierarchical menu, we logically divide an absolute positioning device into finger-operated strip segments, which we use as one-dimensional scrolling devices. Our menu system is intended to make user interaction faster by not requiring constant visual feedback. This is preferable for interaction in which the visual user interface elements occupy only a small portion of the eye's entire field-of-view and in which navigating in menus with a pointer would be awkward and time-consuming. With our approach, it is even possible for the user to use peripheral vision for interaction, since there is no need to precisely position a small pointer on the screen. Thus, the user can maintain eye contact with others or keep his or her focus of attention on the environment while using a wearable device.
