Wearable technology has been envisioned, amongst other things, to enhance face-to-face social interaction. For example, the visibility of wearable devices to other people (e.g. a wearable display) could augment the wearer’s appearance by displaying public and socially relevant information about them. Such information could increase nearby people’s awareness of the wearer, thus serve as tickets-to-talk and, ideally, enhance their first encounters. We present the design of CueSense, a wearable displays that shows textual content from the wearer’s social media profiles, determined by the level of proximity to another user and match-making between their contents. We report the findings from a preliminary user study with 18 participants, followed by discussion as well as ideas for future research and further refinement of the concept.
