2D windows-based interfaces may not be appropriate for wearable computers. We draw on virtual reality techniques to design and evaluate alternative methods for information presentation in a wearable environment. We find that simple body-stabilised displays provide benefits over traditional head-stabilised displays. Users find body-stabilised displays easier to use, more enjoyable and more intuitive, and are able to perform better on a search task. Spatial audio and visual cues further enhance performance.
