Chang, J.-S. G., "Audio Stream Bookmarking with a Wristband Controller: Exploring the Role of Explicit Commands in an Implicit Control Loop,", M.Sc. Thesis, University of British Columbia, 2011.
This project places itself as a preliminary and informal evaluation to explicit commands and a proposed implicit control loop. It focuses on the design methods for explicit commands and the relationship between implicit and explicit control channels. Attentional bookmarking (interruption driven) for spoken audio streams (e.g., audio books, podcasts) are chosen as a sample use case. The full project is comprised of information gathering of the use case, brainstorming and designing a controller prototype, and a preliminary field evaluation of the controller. Several design implications for explicit commands and implicit control loops are suggested.
