Driven by advances in mobile computing and communications, ambient intelligence, and ubiquitous sensors, wearable computing facilitates a new form of human-to-computer interaction via small, on-body devices that are always connected, hands-free, and less distractive, and that have multiple access opportunities. This always-ready capability leads to a new form of synergy between humans and computers, offering consistency and multitasking capabilities.
