Currently wearable computing is still a technology of niches and in a laboratory stage. With wearIT@work a project dedicated to applications was launched by the European Commission. The first 18 months of the project are over and the first demonstrators and results were achieved. As the project strongly follows a cyclic and user centred design approach much effort was put on investigations with end users in the four application domains of aircraft maintenance, production, healthcare and emergency response. Demonstrators of wearable computing solutions were achieved and evaluations with end users performed. In this paper the research concept of the project is introduced and results from the wearable computing aircraft maintenance show case are presented.
