Research on wearable controllers has shown that body-worn cords have many interesting physical affordances that make them powerful as a novel input device to control mobile applications in an unobtrusive manner. With this work, we want to extend the interaction and application repertoire of body-worn cords by contributing the concept of visually augmented interactive cords using state-of-the-art augmented reality (AR) glasses. This novel combination of simultaneous input and output on a cord has the potential to create rich AR user interfaces that seamlessly support direct interaction and reduce cognitive burden by providing visual and tactile feedback. As a main contribution, we present a set of cord-based interaction techniques for browsing menus, selecting items, adjusting continuous values & ranges and solving advanced tasks in AR. In addition, we present our current implementation including different touch-enabled cords, its data transmission and AR visualization.
