This thesis investigates the interaction with insertable technology as well as the challenges, opportunities and motivations that are present during this interaction. Therefore, we conducted a two part study. First, we analyzed 122 YouTube videos in order to observe real life interaction with insertable devices. Second, we conducted an online survey to supplement the data from the video analysis.
Our results show that the insertable devices are mainly used for access and identification, as well as for leisure and creativity. However, the interaction with insertable devices is hindered by multiple challenges due to the novelty and limitations of the current insertable technology as well as the immaturity of the existing infrastructure. In addition, further research is required in order to fully understand the implications and opportunities of future insertable technology.
