Smart Device, Physical Computing, Ubiquitous Technology, Wearable Computing
Essentially we can term something as a smart device if it is a mobile / cordless solution (for easy transportation / use) which may potentially be connected to the Internet, or GPS or similar, or have voice / video capabilities. Continue reading Some Definitions Within My Field of Study
This write up follows an initial few months of research into wearables / an initial questionnaire to establish if people did in fact feel badly when forgetting items, as well as a general specification for a few parameters.
To meet Weisers’ concept of disappearing computing and technologies requires that users are willing to accept the use of that technology into their everyday lives.
Wearable Computing Many challenges await wearable designers as they balance innovative interfaces, power requirements, network resources and Privacy concerns. (Thad Starner, The challenges of wearable computing.) Continue reading Wearables : Initial Questionnaire : Specification
This prototype (Message Bag 1.1) builds on the initial message bag, and has the basic features of it enhanced. It serves as an initial testing prototype to work through initial flaws and design decisions as well as features and how they would work, or what purpose they would serve. The initial message bag that was created has had the components removed and they are built from the ground up, being modified or altered to better and more accurately serve the needs of this prototype.
