Skinput by Shridhar Sharma

  1. 1. Presented By-: Shridhar Sharma Dept. Of Computer Science & Engineering Dewan V.S. Institute of Engineering & Technology Meerut, U.P.
  2. 2. <ul><li>Skinput is a collaboration between Chris Harrison at Carnegie Mellon University and Dan Morris at Microsoft's research lab in Redmond, Washington </li></ul><ul><li>Touch-screen gadgets have become popular due to the advantages they come with </li></ul><ul><li>Skinput turns the body into a touch-screen interface </li></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><li>Motivation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Although significant and powerful devices are now being used but </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>their small size typically leads to limited interaction space </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we cannot simply make buttons and screens larger without losing the primary benefit of small size </li></ul></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>It applies the use of series of sensors to determine where the user taps on their arms </li></ul><ul><li>Each part of the body Creates different types of variations depending on the features of the bones, muscle and tendons </li></ul>
  5. 8. <ul><li>Pico-Projector </li></ul><ul><li>A very small projector, basically used in gadgets </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. Spice popcorn (mobile cum projector) </li></ul>
  6. 9. <ul><li>Bio-Acoustics: </li></ul><ul><li>Study of Sound waves inside living body </li></ul><ul><li>When a finger taps the skin, several distinct forms of acoustic energy are produced </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Longitudinal waves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Transverse waves </li></ul></ul><ul><li>These waves form the integral part of the whole concept of Skinput </li></ul>
  7. 10. <ul><li>Transverse wave propagation : Finger impacts displace the skin, creating transverse waves (ripples). The sensor is activated as the wave passes underneath it. </li></ul>Longitudinal wave propagation: Finger impacts create longitudinal (compressive) waves that cause internal skeletal structures to vibrate
  8. 11. <ul><li>These signals need to be sensed and worked upon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is done by wearing the wave sensor armband </li></ul></ul>
  9. 14. <ul><li>Mobile </li></ul><ul><li>Gaming </li></ul><ul><li>i-pods </li></ul><ul><li>Simpler browsing systems </li></ul><ul><li>An aid to paralyzed people </li></ul>
  10. 15. <ul><li>With small sized Pico-projectors, skinput oriented systems , are an emerging trend </li></ul><ul><li>Research is carried out for smaller wrist watch sized sensor armband </li></ul>
  11. 16. <ul><li>2011 </li></ul>2020
  12. 18. <ul><li>THANK YOU </li></ul>
