Current desktop interfaces may be inappropriate for wearable computers. We draw on virtual reality techniques to design and evaluate three alternate methods for information presentation in a wearable environment; one with a head-stabilized information display, the other two with spatial information displays. Subjects find the spatial displays easier to use and more intuitive, and performed better on a search task using them. Spatial audio and visual cues further enhanced performance. An application of a wearable body-stabilized communication space is described.
