Abstract: Wearable vision brings about new opportunities for augmenting humans in social interactions. However, along with it comes privacy concerns and possible information overload. We explore users’ needs and attitudes toward augmented interaction in face-to-face communications. In particular, we want to find out whether users need additional information when interacting with acquaintances, what information they want to access, and how they use it in their communications. We design a prototype system on Google Glass that provides the wearer with in-situ personal information about the target person. The prototype was tested with 20 participants in a few interaction scenarios. Based on thorough analysis of users’ behaviors and feedback, we find that users in general appreciated the usefulness of wearable assistance for social interactions. We highlight a few key technical, behavioral, and social implications of wearable vision for interaction assistance to foster technology advancement.
