|2||Thu Jan 29||Applications:
Our goal in Class 2 is to gain an understanding of the kinds of
applications in which mobility and wearability would be most useful.
Bear in mind the key characteristics of mobile and
wearable computing we discussed in Class 1, and the more
inclusive definition of wearable computing given in
Feiner, IWAR 99
(listed above, which we didn't get to discuss). Read the papers with an eye to
which of these characteristics they exploit, how they exploit them,
and how well they do it.
What real or potential applications can you think of that are not
addressed in the readings?
(Although I do want you to read these papers, I don't expect you to memorize
them, but rather to get a good feel for the range of applications and
approaches that people are exploring. Class participation is "open book"!)

user's constantly changing environment? We will explore the different
kinds of environmental context that can be sensed and the advantages of
responding to that context.

"Mobilizing" an application: How can we apply what we've learned about mobile and wearable technology, and the context within which computing takes place, to develop applications and user interfaces that make sense? We'll choose some example domains in class, relate them to what we've covered thus far, and do some "low-fi" sketches that specifically address mobility and wearability. This will provide you with some of the tools you will need to develop your project design. Please come to class with some ideas about domains and applications to explore, with one important constraint: they should be different from your project proposal!
