Bonjour!: greeting gestures for collocated interaction with wearables

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



Wearable devices such as smartwatches (SW) and head-worn displays (HWD) are gaining popularity. To improve the collocated capabilities of wearables, we need to facilitate collocated interaction in a socially ac- ceptable manner. In this paper we propose to explore widespread used greeting gestures such as handshakes or head gestures to perform collocated interactions with wearables. These include pairing devices or information exchange. We analyze the properties of greetings and how they can map to different levels of wearable pair- ing (family, friend, work, stranger). This paper also suggest how these gestures could be detected with SWs and HWDs. Author
