Abstract

This study focuses on how technology can encourage and ease awkwardness-free communications between people in real-world scenarios. We propose a device, The Wearable Aura, able to project a personalized animation onto one's Personal Distance zone. This projection, as an extension of one-self is reactive to user's cognitive status, aware of its environment, context and user's activity. Our user study supports the idea that an interactive projection around an individual can indeed benefit the communications with other individuals. Copyright held by the owner/author(s).
