Skinput

It’s kinda crazy – but kinda cool, too. The premise: as technology gets smaller and smaller it gets harder for us to interact with the devices. The solution: use our bodies as input devices!

Chris Harrison’s research project, Skinput, to be published at CHI 2010, is fascinating. It’s fun to imagine what this might be like in a few years as technology advances, maybe combined with some sort of augmented reality tech…

Update: Chris’s Skinput was done as part of his PhD research at CMU. It was done in collaboration with Desney Tan and Dan Morris at Microsoft Research, who have this video demoing the technology.
