    One of the major limitations of portable computing devices is the small size of their built-in displays. Fortunately, extremely small projection systems are being developed that can be integrated into devices that are small enough to be body-worn, yet can project a large image onto surfaces in the environment. To explore how a user might interact with this near-horizon technology, we created a fun... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a finger-ring shaped wearable HANDset. It uses the human finger as a transmission route for the receiving voice (bone conduction). Vibration noise is reduced using a newly-created microphone unit named "Duaphragm" that can suppress echo by about 70%. Duaphragm provides a small, low-power, and low-cost means of reducing vibration noise. In addition, a new LSI chip that integra... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a system for browsing voice data which are recorded by people in a wearable computing environment. In this system, voice data is structured by hypertext-style links. A linked part of the voice data is specified by its start/end time in an attached HTML file. When voice data is played, each link is announced by a link sound such as a beep. Users can get linked information ... View full abstract»

    Context-aware mobile computing requires wearable sensors to acquire information about the user. Continuous sensing rapidly depletes the -wearable system's energy, which is a critically constrained resource. In this paper, we analyze the trade-off between power consumption and prediction accuracy of context classifiers working on dual-axis accelerometer data collected from the eWaich sensing and no...

    This paper proposes an experience-capturing system that features low-stress -wearable computers and secure data collection. Several design requirements are discussed based on user comments concerning the preceding version of the prototype. We designed a small, lightweight wearable computer unit for capturing human-human and human-object interaction with microphones, video cameras, infrared LED tag... View full abstract»

    We describe a navigation and location determination system for the blind using an RFID tag grid. Each RFID tag is programmed upon installation with spatial coordinates and information describing the surroundings. This allows for a self-describing, localized information system with no dependency on a centralized database or wireless infrastructure for communications. We describe the system and repo...

    Recent research has explored ways to obtain and use knowledge of person-object interactions. We present a novel pair of wearables, a glove and a bracelet, that detect when users interact with unobtrusively tagged objects. The glove can also report whether the grasp was with the palm or the fingertips. Both devices have been built and deployed. We present the, requirements, design and early experie...

    In this paper we present results related to achieving finegrained activity recognition for context-aware computing applications. We examine the advantages and challenges of reasoning with globally unique object instances detected by an RFID glove. We present a sequence of increasingly powerful probabilistic graphical models for activity recognition. We show the advantages of adding additional comp... View full abstract»

    Mobile and wearable interfaces try to integrate digital information into our everyday experiences but usually require more attention than is appropriate and often fail to do so in a natural and socially acceptable way. In this paper we present "ReachMedia", a system for seamlessly providing just-in-time information for everyday objects, built around a wireless wristband with an RFID reader to dete...

    This paper describes a system developed for determining locations of devices on 802.11 wireless networks. Data representing 18,000 computers registered on Carnegie Mellon's Wireless Andrew is presented from traces taken in 2003 and 2005. Developers make many assumptions when creating applications for wearable and pervasive computers. The data collected by Locator@CMU provides a clearer understandi... View full abstract»

    The research and development of attractive smart clothing, with truly embedded technologies, demands the merging of science and technology with art and design. This paper looks at a comparatively new and unique design discipline that has been given little prior consideration. The concept of 'wearables' crosses the boundaries between many disciplines. A gap exists for a common 'language' that facil... View full abstract»
