Toward wearable social networking with iBand

Marije Kanis, Niall Winters, Stefan Agamanolis, Anna Gavin, Cian Cullinan
2005 CHI '05 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
As such, iBand seeks to explore potential applications at the intersection of social networking and ubiquitous computing.  ...  In this paper, we discuss the iBand technology and feedback from an initial study in which 11 devices were used at two different social networking events.  ...  Figure 1 . 1 The iBand and shaking hands with it. Figure 2 . 2 Wearable social networking with iBand during the event in London.  ...

Framework for Ubiquitous Social Networks [article]

Atta ur Rehman Khan, Mazliza Othman, Abdul Nasir Khan, Imran Ali khan
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Instead of making virtual connections, on the basis of human social networks, an effort has been made to facilitate interactions among human social networks with the help of virtual social networks.  ...  This paper presents a novel framework for ubiquitous social networks (USNs).  ...  Hence, smart phone is considered a positive step towards true wearable computers. C.  ...

A wearable interface for visualizing coauthor networks toward building a sustainable research community

Susumu Kuriyama, Masao Ohira, Hiroshi lgaki, Ken-ichi Matsumoto
2006 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '06  
Instead of providing users with complex social network graphs, SCACS transforms network graphs into tree maps so that users are able to better understand the community.  ...  In contrast to exploiting social interactions in real world to enhance experiences of social networking services in virtual world, SCACS collects information on social networks (e.g., coauthor relationships  ...  For instance, Trace [2] exploits physical co-presence at social events for creating social networks in virtual world, and supports follow-up activities after events. iBand [5] motivates users to exchange  ...

One LED is Enough: Catalyzing Face-to-face Interactions at Conferences with a Gentle Nudge

Jay Chen, Azza Abouzied
2016 Proceedings of the 19th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work & Social Computing - CSCW '16  
Face-to-face social interactions among strangers today are becoming increasingly rare as people turn towards computermediated networking tools.  ...  This paper describes CommonTies, a gentle technological nudge in the form of a wearable accessory, that encourages immediate, face-to-face, organic social interactions among strangers at conferences.  ...  Several works have investigated sensor networks in the form of body sensors or wearable badge for measuring in-situ data on social gatherings [17, 25] .  ...

Socially-aware congestion control in ad-hoc networks: Current status and the way forward

Hannan Bin Liaqat, Amjad Ali, Junaid Qadir, Ali Kashif Bashir, Muhammad Bilal, Fiaz Majeed
2019 Future generations computer systems  
Ad-hoc social networks (ASNETs) represent a special type of traditional ad-hoc network in which a user's social properties (such as the social connections and communications metadata as well as application  ...  While a number of congestion control schemes have been proposed for the traditional ad-hoc networks, there has been limited focus on incorporating social awareness into congestion control schemes.  ...  [123] offered a wearable, socially-aware bracelet called iBand, which contains an infrared transceiver for communication purposes and transfers information during a handshake process enabling two iBands  ...

Enhancing interactional synchrony with an ambient display

Madeline Balaam, Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Judith Good, Eric Harris
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '11  
In this paper we present a study using an ambient technology that supports nonverbal communication, and specifically nonverbal behaviours associated with rapport.  ...  Nonverbal communication is an essential part of face-toface social interaction, conveying information about emotion and interpersonal relationships.  ...  They are designed to help people network, and find people with similar interests.  ...
