In this paper, we introduce the information logistics concept and demonstrate its relevance for the field of wearable computing. Information logistics is an innovative technology based on the idea that the right information gets to the recipient, e.g. journalist at the right time. The objective is a need- and user-orie nted information supply according to just-in-time principles. The Smart-Wear project is a first step towards a personalized, wearable information broker based on the information logistics concept. In this paper, we want to illustrate the complexity of such a project aiming to deliver "information skin-deep". We therefore present the underlying idea as well as the system architecture. We furthermore summarize the experiences and results of the customer study as user acceptance proves to be one of the major tasks of wearable computing due the impact such technologies have on the users.
