  5. 5. motivation a proposal for tomorrow vision steps contributions we desire an awareness system to keep track of our “stuff” and let us know if we are missing something this is not a new idea...most notably, we have Build Your Own Bag (Gauri Nanda, MIT)
  6. 6. motivation a proposal for tomorrow vision steps contributions Our system attempts to trade off BYOB’s power for ease of use. This lets us solve many problems I feel hinder a system’s adoption... *today’s systems will not easily swap in and out items to be recognized E.g. - presume for the next few days you’re carrying around a friend’s camera... *current systems are built into, not independent of, fashion *current systems rely on active attention
  7. 7. motivation the pocketwatchit system vision steps contributions Two Big Ideas: 1) Ask individual pockets/ bags to collectively report (Visual) their belongings to a central You are carrying four of five items location (in this case, a wristwatch) left pocket has right pocket two items has two items 2)Central location gives an ambient visual cue of whether anything is askew.
  8. 8. motivation the pocketwatchit system vision steps contributions Scenario: Mark is running out the door to meet his date. In the old system, Mark would be limited to wearing a certain bag/clothing item that would hold his wallet, keys, etc and keep track of them.
  9. 9. motivation object tracking component vision steps contributions Instead, he slides/clips a thin fabric, pocket- protector-esque holster into each pocket of the pants he wishes to wear... removable pocket sewn (or bag) RFID lining reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  10. 10. motivation object tracking component vision steps contributions ...and has (earlier) labeled each of the items he wishes to keep count of with an RFID sticker (small or otherwise fashionable) RFID Sticker Set removable pocket (or bag) lining sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  11. 11. motivation object tracking component vision steps contributions An RFID reader in each pocket counts the items (stickers) it can see inside its pocket.... i have i have three one item items removable pocket (small or otherwise fashionable) (or bag) lining RFID Sticker Set sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  12. 12. motivation object tracking component vision steps contributions An RFID reader in each pocket counts the item (stickers) it can four see inside its pocket.... items are being ...and via Bluetooth reported to me transmission tells the watch its count. The watch then sums and i have three i have one items item reports the total. removable pocket (small or otherwise fashionable) (or bag) lining RFID Sticker Set sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  13. 13. motivation the pocketwatchit system vision steps contributions Scenario: Mark is running out the door to meet his date. In the old system, Mark would be limited to wearing a certain bag/ clothing item that would connect with his system. Mark throws the pocket liners, filled with his stuff, into his Rico Suave jeans and runs out the door. He does not change his watch, the central unit, and thus the system stays intact.
  14. 14. motivation the pocketwatchit system vision steps contributions Scenario: Mark is running out the door to meet his date. Mark can now wear the rico suave jeans he so desires, the trackers hidden in his pocket independent of his attempts at fashion. Mark runs out the door, purposely leaving his iPod behind. Today, the bag shouts ”Your iPod is missing!” periodically. He reaches back to silence the bag while driving, causing him to miss his turn...
  15. 15. motivation object viewing component vision steps contributions Instead of active alerts, we opt to trade off: information for style interrupt-ability for “routine” removable pocket (small or otherwise fashionable) (or bag) lining RFID Sticker Set sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  16. 16. motivation object viewing component vision steps contributions The ring around an ordinary watch face is divided into N sections, for N items the user is carrying around. removable pocket (small or otherwise fashionable) (or bag) lining RFID Sticker Set sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  17. 17. motivation object viewing component vision steps contributions The ring around an ordinary watch face is divided into N sections, for N items the user is carrying around. If the user’s watch sees less items than it expects, the ring will be “incomplete.” A small watch dial changes the expected number of items. removable pocket (small or otherwise fashionable) (or bag) lining RFID Sticker Set sewn RFID reader sewn Bluetooth transmitter
  18. 18. motivation the pocketwatchit system vision steps contributions Scenario: Mark is running out the door to meet his date. Mark can now wear the rico suave jeans he so desires, the trackers hidden in his pocket independent of his attempts at fashion. Mark runs out the door, purposely leaving his iPod behind. Today, the bag shouts ”Your iPod is missing!” periodically. He reaches back to silence the bag while driving, causing him to miss his turn... car cell Now, Mark checks his watch keys as he is walking out the door, wallet sets the number of expected items to N-1, and expects a full ring throughout his date.
  19. 19. motivation contributions vision steps contributions the pocketwatchit system: *is more personal than today’s smartwatches * is feasible (constructable today from parts) *lets the existing physical world retain its identity
