Health care professionals regularly require access to information systems throughout their daily work. However, existing smart devices like smartphones and tablets are difficult to use at the point of care, because health care professionals require both hands during their work. Following a design science research approach including ethnographic fieldwork and prototype tests with focus groups, we find that Augmented Reality smart glass applications offer potential for service innovation in the… Expand
Smart Glasses in Health Care: A Patient Trust Perspective
TLDR
It is found that it is important to properly explain to patients why smart glasses are being used and to proactively address data privacy concerns otherwise, smart glasses can significantly increase risk perceptions, reduce patients’ estimates of health care workers’ abilities, and decrease Patients’ willingness to opt-in to medical procedures.

Adaptation of Extended Reality Smart Glasses for Core Nursing Skill Training Among Undergraduate Nursing Students: Usability and Feasibility Study
TLDR
Smart glasses have the potential to assist self-practice, providing timely information at students’ own paces, and further revision correcting reported issues would improve the applicability of smart glasses in other areas of nursing education. Expand
Adaptation of Extended Reality Smart Glasses for Core Nursing Skill Training Among Undergraduate Nursing Students: Usability and Feasibility Study (Preprint)
BACKGROUND Skill training in nursing education has been highly dependent on self-training because of Korea’s high student-faculty ratio. Students tend to have a passive attitude in self-practice,Expand
Opportunities and Challenges of Smartglass-Assisted Interactive Telementoring
TLDR
This paper explores the opportunities and challenges of interactive telementoring, especially for wearers of smartglasses, and defines what can be integrated into smartglass-enabled interactive Telementoring. Expand
Comparative study of user experience on mobile pedestrian navigation between digital map interface and location-based augmented reality
TLDR
Results show that in the context of pedestrian navigation, digital map interfaces lead to significantly better navigation performance in pragmatic attributes in comparison to AR interfaces, and reveals that location-based AR is more valued by participants in hedonic qualities and overall performance.

Evaluating the Microsoft HoloLens through an augmented reality assembly application
TLDR
To assess the Microsoft HoloLens’ potential for delivering AR assembly instructions, the cross-platform Unity 3D game engine was used to build a proof of concept application and showed that while the HoloLens is a promising system, there are still areas that require improvement, such as tracking accuracy, before the device is ready for deployment in a factory assembly setting.
