From On-Body to Out-Of-Body User Experience. There are many urgent problems facing the planet: a degrading environment, a healthcare system in crisis, and educational systems that are failing to produce creative, innovative thinkers to solve tomorrow’s problems. I will illustrate how we are addressing these grand challenges in our research by building systems that balance innovative on-body user interfaces with novel activity inference technology. These systems have helped individuals stay fit, led families to be more sustainable in their everyday lives, and supported learners in acquiring second languages.
