The collection of uninterrupted data describing real user behaviour remains an open challenge in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) research. This paper proposes a solution to disrupted ADL experimental data collection by developing a prototype system of a flexible, voice-controlled wearable device with a wireless smart home hub. Development included surface mounted components, inkjet printing, a Raspberry Pi, voice-recognition software, LilyPad Arduino, and XBee modules. This proof-of-concept system has shown the feasibility of building such a system, and the prototyping process helped highlight areas of further improvements needed in future implementations.
