This research presents a functional model for a wearable display that describes the typical contextual relationships surrounding its everyday use. Two wearable display devices were developed that sense and visually represent skin conductivity level, as an objective measurement of the physiological arousal in humans. Each device uses a distinct display technique, which varies in the level of comprehensibility and ambiguity it affords to those who view it over a period of time. A short observation and pilot study of usage patterns of each display technique was conducted to assess the qualitative comfort and usability issues of wearable computing displays in everyday environments.
