Authors: Suresh Sethi
Abstract: The focus of this paper is designing wearable devices to support the emotional relationship between users. The research reflects that any attempt by designers to produce outcomes aimed at helping design wearable devices must be grounded in an understanding of emotional engagement, convenient access, and intimate interaction. Emotionally positive experiences can inspire attempts to develop rich experiential devices. The case is made through several student projects that deal with particulars rooted in human relationships.
Keywords: Wearables Devices, Emotional Engagement, Human Centered Design
