Wearable Input

 

Sustainable Apparel Consumption Through the Smart Wardrobe

Traditional methods of interacting with devices usually assume the device has the user's complete attention. In the wearable environment, this is often not true. On-body interaction methods offer the abilitiy to take us away from menus and keyboards and interact in a more natural manner with our information technologies. Our research looks at different approaches to designing ultra-mobile, hands-free, wearable methods of interacting.
