Talk with Aaron re wearables

September 29th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Had a quick chat with Aaron about the survey I am planning, and he suggested picking out a number of busy job types, where people are very mobile (i.e. travelling etc, not just at home with a laptop), and trying to show that somehow using ambient/pervasive technology would improve some aspect of their job – e.g. improved productivity by 5% or whatever – or perhaps a nurse in hospital having an ambient monitor about her person that keeps a track of patients condition.

Also suggested jumping people and asking them about their devices power and usage –

How much power does it have (without looking)? Why do you think that? what applications have been running?

Also talked about opportunistic annexing – using devices to interact with the environment – much like the personal server (Trevor Pering et al)
