SkinWatch: Skin Gesture Interaction for Smart Watch

Authors: Masa Ogata and Michita Imai

Abstract: We propose SkinWatch, a new interaction modality for wearable devices. SkinWatch provides gesture input by sensing deformation of the skin under a wearable wrist device, also known as a smart watch. A gesture command that is matched by learning data and two-dimensional linear input recognizes the gestures. The sensing part is small, thin, and stable, to accept accurate input via a user’s skin. We also implement an anti-error mechanism to prevent unexpected input when the user moves or rotates his or her forearm. The whole sensor costs less than $1.50 and the sensor layer does not exceed a height of more than 3 mm in this prototype. We demonstrate sample applications with a practical task, using two-finger skin gesture input.
