This collection explores augmentation technologies and points to future designs and practices that may mitigate harms. Consequences overlap in complex assemblages that need to be considered in context, and those contexts are more tied to personal computing than ever before. Biometrics play a more significant role due to the embodied nature of augmentation technology. The risks, consequences and impact for users are different with Augmentation Technologies because the technologies are evolving rapidly.
