Abstract

We present the concept of the "Enhanced Tradition", combining electronics with traditional Japanese clothes; our initial prototype integrates a smart phone display in an obi (traditional sash). We overcome the common problem of where to put the phone while wearing Kimono and Yukata and create a new flexible, interaction surface. We present a user study evaluating our first design and exploring the application design space for using the "Enhanced Obi" to augment the user. The application ideas from users range from displaying past or current events to communicating the mental state to bystanders.
