The SCIPIO (“Semi-Complex Intelligent Programmable Input and Output”) module is a miniaturized interface device designed for use in wearable computing applications. It provides a considerable number of flexibly combinable input and output channels in a small and lightweight package (50x30x12 mm, 19 gram). Besides hardware aspects of the SCIPIO interface the paper shows an example of a wearable interaction device that was built with the SCIPIO hardware to evaluate its usefulness for interaction device design for wearable applications.
