  • 8. Thad Starner & Steve Mann
  • 9. Constancy, Augmentation, Mediation. ! -- Steve Mann (Definition of Wearable Computer)
  • 10. Constancy: “always on”
  • 11. Augmentation “...computing is not the primary task.” (Mann, 1997).
  • 12. Mediation: Presentation, filtration, and alteration of information encountered by the user.
  • 13. What about context?
  • 14. "Wearable Intelligence in Healthcare" (
  • 15. Context.... ! any probable, interpretable, and relevant information. in a situation. ! actively produced by the user and the devices through information flows. ! ...can be regarded as a web and concerns focal and peripheral zones. ! ...contains entities which relate to each other, signifying processes of interaction.
  • 16. + User + ‘Artifacts’ (or devices) Other users, other artifacts. Internet: “Everything”
  • 17. What about designers and their tools?
  • 18. Designers try to get everything right from the start. ! Nowadays we know we can't, e.g. Agile and SCRUM, but designing for context requires a holistic approach. ! The dominant UX paradigm says that we should design for single and simple purposes, but the increasing amount of possible interactions makes this difficult.
  • 19. The kinds of contexts: ! › Sensual: devices extract and uncover information from the environment. ! › Relational: devices and users are connected in ‘artifact ecologies’ (Bødker, 2012). ! › Reciprocal: interactions between services, users, and devices constitute mutual information flows. ! Each context creates another context.
  • 20. How can we do this lean?
