Wearable IoT technology has too much potential to be limited to a wristband. How can we design wearables with more variety while still providing value to the user? We describe a work in progress to develop a novel method of Participatory Design Fiction to inspire a real-world, everyday wearable IoT system. We show how this has led to a greater understanding of our users’ needs, resulting in a technology probe for an everyday wearable IoT system that works towards meeting those needs.
