  title={Artificial grapheme-color synesthesia for wearable task support},
  author={Nicolas Plouznikoff and Alexandre Plouznikoff and Jean-Marc Robert},
  journal={Ninth IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC'05)},
This paper presents the benefits of generating an artificial visual synesthesia through a wearable computer. [...] Key Result Preliminary results suggest that this kind of artificial synesthesia improves short term memory recall and visual information search times.Expand
Artificial Odour-Vision Syneasthesia via Olfactory Sensory Argumentation
The phenomenology of synaesthesia provides numerous cognitive benefits, which could be used towards augmenting interactive experiences with more refined multisensorial capabilities leading to moreExpand

VisibleSound: Perceiving Environmental Sound with 4D Form
The progression of application software and high-speed Internet access has, in general, the ability to commonly engage synesthetic experience. However, current synesthesia systems do not meet theirExpand
Enhancing human-machine interactions: virtual interface alteration through wearable computers
The case for using wearable computers to enhance the interactions between humans and conventional appliances is made and preliminary results suggest that virtually altering the interface of real world devices improves execution times for simple tasks using these devices. Expand
Dynamic, Abstract Representations of Audio in a Mobile Augmented Reality Conferencing System
In this chapter, the user interface and infrastructure, SoundSight, which uses the Skype Internet telephony API to support wireless conferencing, is discussed, and the early experience using the system is described. Expand
Support mobile à la tâche: médiation utilisateur - monde réel par l'intermédiaire d'un ordinateur porté
This paper presents the state of research on three human-real world mediation levels: virtual alteration, virtualization and diffusion, and highlights the similarities and differences between these mediation levels to guide designers in their selection. Expand


Artificial Synesthesia via Sonification: A Wearable Augmented Sensory System

  • 1997
A design for an implemented, prototype wearable artificial sensory system is presented which uses data sonification to compensate for normal limitations in the human visual system. The system givesExpand
Five plus two equals yellow
This work demonstrates that C.'s photisms are both consistent and automatic, but it finds that an externally presented inducing stimulus is not necessary to trigger a photism and that simply activating the concept of a digit is sufficient. Expand
The memory glasses: subliminal vs. overt memory support with imperfect information
The results of a larger study are presented, demonstrating that not only is wearable subliminal cuings significantly effective (increasing performance by a factor of approximately 1.5, p = 0.02), but even incorrect subliminals cues can actually improve performance. Expand
Object augmentation through ecological human-wearable computer interactions
The case for an ecological approach for the engineering of human-wearable computer interactions is made, expressly based on the use of environmental objects strongly associated with the task that needs to be accomplished, which will ultimately lead to the augmentation of these entities. Expand
Synesthetic Color Experiences Influence Memory
C, a 21-year-old student who experiences synesthetic colors when she sees, hears, or thinks of digits, is described and it is shown that her synesthetic photisms can influence her memory for digits. Expand
Humanistic computing: "WearComp" as a new framework and application for intelligent signal processing
This paper takes a first step toward an intelligent wearable camera system that can allow one to effortlessly capture the authors' day-to-day experiences, help us remember and see better, provide us with personal safety through crime reduction, and facilitate new forms of communication through collective connected humanistic computing.
