Hendrik Witt examines user interfaces for wearable computers and analyses the challenges imposed by the wearable computing paradigm through its dual-task character. He introduces a special software tool as well as the qHotWireq evaluation method to facilitate user interface development and evaluation. Based on the results of different end-user experiments conducted to study the management of interruptions with gesture and speech input in a wearable computing scenario, the author derives design guidelines and general constraints for forthcoming interface designs.Although long term evaluations are always desired for daily use scenarios, they are beyond the scope of this thesis. ... The prototypical implementation of the software development tool proposed for wearable user interfaces aims to ... Each chapter covers a certain topic: Figure 1.1: Overview of the general structure of the thesis 6 Introduction Thesis Organization Evaluation of Wearable User Interfaces 89.
