We introduce DeformWear, tiny wearable devices that leverage single-point deformation input on various body locations. Despite the small input surface, DeformWear enables expressive and precise input using high-resolution pressure, shear, and pinch deformations.

SkinMarks are novel skin-worn I/O devices for precisely localized input and output on fine body landmarks. SkinMarks comprise skin electronics on temporary rub-on tattoos. They conform to fine wrinkles and are compatible with strongly curved and elastic body locations.

iSkin is a novel class of skin-worn sensors for touch input on the body. It is a very thin sensor overlay, made of biocompatible materials, and is flexible and stretchable. It can be produced in different shapes and sizes to suit various locations of the body such as the finger, forearm, or ear.

Skin is fundamentally different from off-body touch surfaces. In an empirical study we investigate characteristics of the various skin-specific input modalities, analyze what kinds of gestures are performed on skin, and study what are preferred input locations.

We introduce our vision of Fingernail Displays: tiny displays that are worn on the fingernails. We explore four application scenarios: (1) FingerPhone, (2) on-finger output on touch displays, (3) fingernail displays as in-situ information display on physical objects, and (4) animated nail art.
Workshop Paper at ACM CHI '13
Researchers have developed interaction concepts based on mobile projectors. Yet pursuing work in this area is cumbersome and time-consuming. To mitigate this problem, we contribute ProjectorKit, a flexible open-source toolkit that eases rapid prototyping mobile projector interaction techniques.

Focus plus context displays combine high-resolution detail and lower-resolution overview using displays of different pixel densities. In this paper, we explore focus plus context displays using one or more mobile projectors in combination with a stationary display.

Printed Electronics for HCI
Printed electronics is changing the landscape of interactive devices and user interfaces. It enables novel types of electrical components, which are thin and deformable. They can be integrated into a large diversity of materials and geometries. This can be used for novel types of devices.
