    Designers of mobile context-aware systems are struggling with the problem of conceptually incorporating the real world into the system design. We present a body-centric modeling framework (as opposed to device-centric) that incorporates physical and virtual objects of interest on the basis of proximity and human perception, framed in the context of an emerging "egocentric" interaction paradigm.
