Persuasive Intent
We investigated how regular eyeglasses fitted with sensing and processing capabilities can be used as a wearable game controller. For this purpose we built a demo based on our smart eyeglasses prototype. WISEglass allows the wearer to control the game Pac-Man through head motions. The control signals are extracted from a gyroscope mounted in the temple of WISEglass. Furthermore we integrated heart rate information into the game.
