Wearable computers have been receiring a great deal of anention as a new computer device. The Open Air Exhibition research group for the World Exposition 2005 (EXPO 2005) is focusing on this new device as a means of making effective use of the outdoor exhihition. Since the year 2000, we have performed annual experiments to evaluate the possibilities of the wearable wmputcr. Also. in order lo increase the popularity, the experimental system was constructed for targeting to the general, not to thc laboratory use. Thcrefon the weight of prototype device is restricted to enable any person to cany it and it is designed to be less obtrusive. In this papcr. we discuss the basic requirements of the system for the Open Air Exhibition which is acceptable to the general.
