Skinput

8 03 2010

IT BLOWS MY MIND!!! This is a video showing how, by mapping the sound your arm makes when you tap it with a finger, you can turn your whole arm into a touchscreen.
“Skinput is based on an armband straddling the wearer’s biceps and detecting the small vibrations generated when the user taps the skin of his arm. Due to different bone densities, tissue mass and muscle size, unique acoustic signatures can be identified for particular parts of the arm or hand (including fingers), allowing people to literally control their gear by touching themselves. The added pico projector is there just for convenience, and we can totally see ourselves using this by simply memorizing the five input points (current maximum, 95.5 percent accuracy), particularly since the band works even if you’re running. Make your way past the break to see Tetris played in a whole new way.”


AMAZING!!!, especially the phone on the palm your hand part. Now all you need is a speaker and mic implanted and it’s “go-go-gadget call”
