Abstract or Description:

In the field of human-computer interaction (HCI), recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in smart textiles with gesture recognition functions. This paper reports usability evaluations of a prototype gesture-controlled illuminative textile developed by the authors. This is an interactive woven POF textile system with computer vision-enabled mid-air gesture recognition. For the usability test, 25 participants (11 males and 14 females) aged between 19 and 56 (M = 30.85, SD = 10.8) were randomly recruited. The study was conducted by the means of the user experience questionnaire (UEQ) and the system usability scale (SUS). Results show that participants responded positively to our gesture-controlled illuminative textile in terms of its attractiveness, perspicuity and stimulation but were less positive about its efficiency. The results will be used to make targeted improvements to the existing product design.
