Smartwatches of today allow you to interact with them using their small touchscreen display. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use areas around your wearable for gesture input? AuraSense explores this idea. Based on electric field sensing, this technology allows touchscreen-like finger tracking on your skin.
With this technology, you can have on-skin buttons, a 2D trackpad, 3D finger tracking around the watch, and a whole lot more.
