NotifEye · Notifications on Smart Glasses

Bumping into street signs and other people while walking on a busy sidewalk is a common problem when people are also trying to check their email or update their Facebook status from their mobile phones. Interactive glasses have the potential to provide timely information (i.e., notifications) while still allowing people to pay attention to and keep an eye on other pedestrians on the sidewalk.

NotifEye allows a person to receive social network notifications on interactive glasses while walking on a busy street. The prototype uses a minimalistic user interface (UI) for interactive glasses to help people focus their attention on their surroundings and supports discreet interaction by using a finger rub pad to take action on incoming notifications.
