Your jacket can now talk to Facebook!

NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT Health Informatics Group prototype smartwear that can talk to Facebook. The smartwear can provide collaboration support for those who cannot use touch-screen smartphones, for instance rescuers, firefighters or people with reduced physical abilities. The jacket can wirelessly read your Facebook updates, vibrate the skin of your neck, in this way getting your attention to check the LCD screen attached to your sleeve.

Simone made it!

Simone Mora did an excellent defense of his thesis at Bergamo University in Italy, scoring 10/10 on his defense and a total score of 103/110 for his Master’s degree. Congratulations from the UbiCollab Team! I will update his thesis page with a PDF. The new addition documents the user experiments he did with users at SINTEF and NTNU and is related to resource discovery and discovery gestures.
