Using the "HotWire'' to study interruptions in wearable computing primary tasks
2006 (English)In: Proceedings: Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers, ISWC 2006 : Montreux, Switzerland, October 11 - 14, 2006, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2006, 37-44 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
As users of wearable computers are often involved in real-world tasks of critical nature, the management and handling of interruptions is crucial for efficient interaction and task performance. We present a study about the impact that different methods for interruption have on those users, to determine how interruptions should be handled. The study is performed using an apparatus called "HotWire" for simulating primary tasks in a laboratory experiment, while retaining the properties of wearable computers being used in mobile, physical, and practical tasks.
