Kortuem, Gerd and Segall, Zary (2003) Wearable communities: augmenting social networks with wearable computers. Volume 1, 02 (1). pp. 71-78. ISSN 1536-1268
This article illustrates the social potentials of wearable computers by discussing wearable communities, social networks based on augmented face-to-face encounters. It discusses social and technical issues of building wearable communities and introduces the WearCoM wearable community design methodology. WearCoM provides a systematic framework for rapid prototyping of wearable community systems. We summarize our experiences in using the WearCoM methodology as a set of design guidelines for wearable communities.
