This research describes a new design method – the Wearable Mapping Suit – which combines bodystorming and prototyping techniques in a human-centred development process for wearable technologies. The method derives from visually prepared body maps that are used in designerly decision-making processes. The idea is illustrated with an exemplified workshop where four visual Identification (ID) Wearables used for authentication interactions get co-created by six participants and two facilitators.
