Publications

We present Pyro, a micro thumb-tip gesture recognition technique based on thermal infrared signals radiating from the fingers. Pyro uses a compact, low-power passive sensor, making it suitable for wearable and mobile applications.
In Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST’17)

We propose a supplementary tactile feedback system to enhance the user experience on the smartwatch form factor. Our system has a deformable surface on the back of the watch face, allowing the visual scene on screen to extend into 2.5D physical space.
In Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST’17)

We present Cito, a smartwatch that can move its face in five ways: rotation, hinge, translation, rising, and orbiting around the wrist. We describe how these movements enable new interactions unavailable in the current smartwatches.
In Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI’17)

WristWhirl uses the wrist as an always-available joystick to perform one-handed continuous input on smartwatches. We explore the influence of the wrist’s bio-mechanical properties for performing gestures to interact with a smartwatch through a user study. We designed and implemented a proof-of-concept device by augmenting the watchband using an array of proximity sensors, which can be used to draw gestures with high quality.
