In this paper, we report on the design, implementation and evaluation of a personal visualization projection, which provides onlookers with a real-time view of the online social identity of the wearer. The wearable system was developed as a novel means of electronic self-expression, and for catalyzing increased social interaction between the wearer and onlookers with similar or complementary personality characteristics. The interactive prototype, driven by a handheld “pico” projector, was evaluated with two groups of four participants each. Based on a case study analysis followed by focus groups, we present our findings according to a contextual evaluation model, which includes aspects of environment, usability, privacy, ambientness, social interaction, and insight.
