Experiences of using wearable computers for ambient telepresence and remote interaction
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM SIGMM workshop on Effective Telepresence: ETP 2004, 2004, 2-11 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present our experiences of using wearable computers for providing an ambient form of telepresence to members of an e-meeting. Using a continuously running e-meeting session as a testbed for formal and informal studies and observations, this form of telepresence can be investigated from the perspective of remote and local participants alike. Based on actual experiences in real-life scenarios, we point out the key issues that prohibit the remote interaction from being entirely seamless, and follow up with suggestions on how those problems can be resolved or alleviated. Furthermore, we evaluate our system with respect to overall usability and the different means for an end-user to experience the remote world.
