I’ve got you under my skin

Chris Harrison is a  Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University advised by Scott Hudson. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of ACM XRDS (formally Crossroads).

His  research focuses on novel interaction techniques and input technologies – especially those that enable (small) mobile devices to appropriate (large) everyday surfaces for input in clever ways.

One of his projects caught our attention.

Skinput, is a technology that appropriates the human body for acoustic transmission, allowing the skin to be used as a finger input surface. I know, this sounds Greek to you, as it sounds Chinese to me. So we let Chris to explain us what Skinput is.

Really amazing.
