Change log


Oliver, Katherine Helen 


This demo will invite attendees to experience a novel technique of Participatory Design Fiction, which uses storytelling to elicit users’ ideas for new kinds of wearable IoT devices, starting from a blank slate. The demo will also feature the Gallery Necklace technology probe, an IoT-enabled neckpiece with an ePaper display, which is the first design artifact of the study so far. Overall, this demo will illuminate how Participatory Design Fiction can give insight into what users really want from wearable computing.
