About this project :
Back in days around the year 2010, a team came up with this brilliant idea and put an effort to make this idea into reality. Later on many such projects were established and later on Sony launched a touchscreen projector that converts any surface into interactive touchscreen. As many of us might now might not be aware about this technology, here is description of the project in short.
Technology Advancement From Microsoft (R) Research: “We present Skinput, a technology that appropriates the human body for acoustic transmission, allowing the skin to be used as an input surface. In particular, we resolve the location of finger taps on the arm and hand by analyzing mechanical vibrations that propagate through the body. We collect these signals using a novel array of sensors worn as an armband. This approach provides an always available, naturally portable, and on-body finger input system. We assess the capabilities, accuracy and limitations of our technique through a two-part, twenty-participant user study. To further illustrate the utility of our approach, we conclude with several proof-of-concept applications we developed.”
There is also a concept/idea which is represented in a video below by The Cicret Bracelet :
With the Cicret Bracelet, you can make your skin your new touchscreen. Read your mails, play your favorite games, answer your calls, check the weather, find your way…Do whatever you want on your arm.
Opinions of techiesms :
This is something we all have waited for, now we don’t have to remove our phone every time we need something. There could be countless applications based on this and it could actually change our way of thinking. Now read texts, change music and several other applications just on your hand but i wonder how convenient will it be to wear and the battery life is also something that can’t be ignored. Nevertheless it’s really fascinating and what a genius mind who came up with the idea. This tech could be the next biggest thing. Though, Sony has already revealed a touchscreen projector which is pretty similar to this project but there is a slight difference between the two, I hope we get to experience it in the near future.
