Making text more readable on wearable displays
April 22, 2013
Osaka University researchers have developed a text-display algorithm that places the current message on the darkest region in view at any given moment and in a readable color, making wearable displays like Google Glass more usable, New Scientist reports.
This is done using the headset’s camera, which plots a constantly changing heat map of viable on-screen reading locations. The algorithm can also split up a message into two small dark regions either side of your field of view.
The team presented their work at the Intelligent User Interfaces conference.
