Lågom is a social wearables prototype, i.e. a wearable that augments co-located social interaction. This design is meant to support people to be aware of and better regulate their verbal participation in group discussions.
Lågom takes the shape of a colorful, bulky, and funny looking flower that senses the wearer's speaking and responds with haptic and visual feedback. We ran a pilot study with nine people participating in a class discussion.
Preliminary results show potential of the haptic feedback to increase self awareness of participation, and to help people better regulate their participation in group discussions.
