Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents a new framework for constructing applications for wearable computers. We do not consider wearable computing merely as a single self-confined system. Rather, wearable computing can be treated as a cooperative application with information surrounding a person and various devices attached to him/her. We have developed a framework of such wearable computing called “Wapplet.” Wapplet provides adaptation to the availability of devices as well as a systematic scheme of constructing applications for wearable computing. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of Wapplet, and show its prototype system.
