Title: SKINPUT
Authors: Binu P.V
Keywords: skinput
sixth sense
pico-projector
Issue Date: 17-Feb-2011
Abstract: Skinput is an input technology that uses bio-acoustic sensing to localize finger taps on the skin. When augmented with a Pico-projector, the device can provide a direct manipulation, graphical user interface on the body. The technology was developed by Chris Harrison, Desney Tan, and Dan Morris, at Microsoft Research's Computational User Experiences Group. Skinput represents one way to decouple input from electronic devices with the aim of allowing devices to become smaller without simultaneously shrinking the surface area on which input can be performed. While other systems, like Sixth Sense have attempted this with computer vision, Skinput employs acoustics, which take advantage of the human body's natural sound conductive properties (e.g., bone conduction). This allows the body to be annexed as an input surface without the need for the skin to be invasively instrumented with sensors, tracking markers, or other items
