Abstract

There has been a great effort to create context-Aware technology to support user's life. Context-Aware technology is useful because it resolves user's demand in prior. However, if it fails to recognize context correctly and controls appliances incorrectly, users may feel uncomfortable about the environment. Context recognition error is currently unavoidable, therefore, notifying the user of what kind of result each context has, is considered to be important in order to ease user's discomfort. In the similar way, it is important to show the smartness of ubiquitous computing environment to people who don't know about the environment. To effectively provide this information to the users, we propose an interface called Second-sighted Glasses, inspired by the movie titled "Next". The glasses shows users the future effects of each action they may take with augmented reality technique.
