Abstract

We present a platform to prototype spatial user interfaces for smart watches relative to the user's body. We show the general feasibility and present 2 applications. The first application scenario enable users "pin" applications in the air around them and get back to them by moving the smart watch display at the same position again. The second application shows a zoom use case for maps or other larger displays/visualizations. The smart watch acts like a digital "magnifying glass" enabling the user to see details he cares about.
