Abstract In this paper, we propose an inconspicuous information notification method with Peripheral Cognition Technology that utilizes a human cognitive characteristic, visual field narrowing. The proposed method achieves an information notification without interruption of users' primary task that they are engaging on. We developed two prototype devices based on the proposed technology, which shift their shape to notify receipt of new information. Such behavior enables a user to easily find and accept the notification without interruption when their attention for the primary task is decreased. The result of the experiment with the developed device showed the successful notification rate was 45.5%.
