My 10-pages paper "First evaluation of enhanced jackets' potential to support first encounters with photo slideshows and emotional displays" written with 橋爪宏達 (HASHIZUME Hiromichi) and ANDRES Frédéric was published at the 8th Virtual Reality International Conference (aka Laval Virtual) the 27 April 2006.
Abstract: We evaluate here the potential and interest of enhanced jackets to support first encounters, based on the automatic generation of photo slideshows, and on emotional displays. Based on social investigations in France and Japan in 2005, we developed a prototype and service that store personal data, process information about context and interlocutors, display photos and comments on the chest and in the back, and evaluate arousal with physiological sensors. Qualitative and quantitative evaluations demonstrate the interest of the system, the impact of first experiences with it on users, and the difficulty to design trusted emotional displays. Finally, we discuss improvements of the system, and propose three guidelines to design social wearables.
