Numerous studies have envisioned the explicit and implicit use of Supernumerary Robotic Limbs (SRLs), wearable robotic limbs, to directly assist a user in performing tasks. In this work, we explore in which situations Supernumerary Robotic Arms (SRAs) could be used in to perform background activities. We conducted a preliminary design study to better understand user expectations for using SRAs in background tasks. Our results highlight that SRAs can be helpful in performing background tasks alongside users performing a primary task. Informed by our study we present our current implementation efforts and suggest directions for future work.
