Abstract

Aspects of the present invention relate to user interface control of a head-worn computer. In one aspect, an external user interface adapted to control a head-worn computer includes a housing with a mechanical attachment system adapted to secure the housing to a steering wheel of a vehicle, a programmable quick launch software application button mounted on the housing and adapted to activate a pre-designated software application on the head-worn computer, and a dedicated button mounted on the housing and adapted to clear a display of the head-worn computer of obstructive content when activated.
