Abstract

This paper describes work in progress on wearable computing configurations which provide audio and visual output based on the position and orientation of the user. We introduce the 'eSleeve' - a wearable wrist computer with position and heading sensors combined with a user interface employing speech recognition and a small display. Applications described include searching a database of locations, and implementing a minimal augmented reality system. The effectiveness of different approaches at conveying location based information is discussed and we also describe our continuing research into position based audio and visual interfaces.
