An ``affective wearable'' is a wearable system equipped with sensors
and tools which enables recognition of its wearer's affective
patterns. Affective patterns include expressions of emotion such as a
joyful smile, an angry gesture, a strained voice or a change in
autonomic nervous system activity such as accelerated heart rate or increasing
skin conductivity. This paper describes new applications of affective
wearables, and presents a prototype which gathers physiological
signals and their annotations from its wearer. Results of preliminary
experiments of its performance are reported for a user wearing four
different sensors and engaging in several natural activities.
