  • 1. Presented By-: Shridhar Sharma Dept. Of Computer Science & Engineering Dewan V.S. Institute of Engineering & Technology Meerut, U.P.

    • Skinput is a collaboration between Chris Harrison at Carnegie Mellon University and Dan Morris at Microsoft's research lab in Redmond, Washington
    • Touch-screen gadgets have become popular due to the advantages they come with
    • Skinput turns the body into a touch-screen interface

    • Motivation
      • Although significant and powerful devices are now being used but
      • their small size typically leads to limited interaction space
      • we cannot simply make buttons and screens larger without losing the primary benefit of small size
  • 6.
    • Skinput can allow users to simply tap their skin in order to control audio devices, play games, make phone calls, and navigate hierarchical browsing systems.
    • It applies the use of series of sensors to determine where the user taps on their arms
    • Each part of the body Creates different types of variations depending on the features of the bones, muscle and tendons
  • 7.  
  • 8.
    • Pico-Projector
    • A very small projector, basically used in gadgets
    • Eg. Spice popcorn (mobile cum projector)
  • 9.
    • Bio-Acoustics:
    • Study of Sound waves inside living body
    • When a finger taps the skin, several distinct forms of acoustic energy are produced
      • Longitudinal waves
      • Transverse waves
    • These waves form the integral part of the whole concept of Skinput
  • 10.
    • Transverse wave propagation : Finger impacts displace the skin, creating transverse waves (ripples). The sensor is activated as the wave passes underneath it.
    Longitudinal wave propagation: Finger impacts create longitudinal (compressive) waves that cause internal skeletal structures to vibrate
  • 11.
    • These signals need to be sensed and worked upon
      • This is done by wearing the wave sensor armband

    • Mobile
    • Gaming
    • i-pods
    • Simpler browsing systems
    • An aid to paralyzed people
  • 15.
    • With small sized Pico-projectors, skinput oriented systems , are an emerging trend
    • Research is carried out for smaller wrist watch sized sensor armband
