Data glasses do carry promising potential for hands-free interaction, but also raise various concerns amongst their potential users. In order to gain insights into the nature of those concerns, we investigate how potential usage scenarios are perceived by device users and their peers. We present results of a two-step approach: a focus group discussion with 7 participants, and a user study with 38 participants. In particular, we look into differences between the usage of data glasses and more established devices such as smart phones. We provide quantitative measures for scenario-related social acceptability and point out factors that can influence user attitudes. Based on our quantitative and qualitative results, we derive design implications that might support the development of head-worn devices and applications with an improved social acceptability.
