Wearable computing devices such as smartwatches and smart glasses are becoming more widely available. These devices present new interaction challenges, as the devices are usually small and the context of use sets limitations on available interaction modalities. We are exploring the use of gaze as input and haptics as output for wearable devices. This demonstration allows users to experience the combination of gaze input and haptic output in the use of a bus schedule application. Links to such applications could be embedded in the environment, much like paper schedules have been used in the past.
