WatchMe: Sharing Context With Location-Aware Phones

Communication is much more than the direct transfer of information. It is an interactive collaborative act including potentially rich verbal and non-verbal cues. Telecommunication to date has focused on verbal communication at a distance, filtering out the non-verbal situational information. With the existing infrastructure it is necessary to first contact a person before receiving feedback on what they are doing. Current communication devices do not provide a persistent sense of presence of those we connect with, nor do they create opportunities for additional communication with them.

WatchMe is a platform for mobile communication and awareness, in the form of a watch, which addresses these limitations. back to Speech_Interfaces
