On-body interaction: armed and dangerous
Recent technological advances in input sensing, as well as ultra-small projectors, have opened up new opportunities for interaction – the use of the body itself as both an input and output platform. Such on-body interfaces offer new interactive possibilities, and the promise of access to computation, communication and information literally in the palm of our hands. The unique context of on-body interaction allows us to take advantage of extra dimensions of input our bodies naturally afford us. In this paper, we consider how the arms and hands can be used to enhance on-body interactions, which is typically finger input centric. To explore this opportunity, we developed Armura, a novel interactive onbody system, supporting both input and graphical output. Using this platform as a vehicle for exploration, we prototyped many applications and interactions. This helped to confirm chief use modalities, identify fruitful interaction approaches, and in general, better understand how interfac...
