Many of us might rely on head-worn displays in the future to get useful information at home and on the go. You could always control such a device with your voice. The Belt gives you another option. It is a wearable touch input device that sits around your hip and has a touch surface that lets you interact with your head-worn display.

The whole surface area of the belt is touch-enabled. You can use such a device to trigger shortcuts, control your music, interact with your notifications, and more. Here is what the developers had to say about it:

In a qualitative user study with 14 participants we found out that for short interactions (2-4 seconds), most of the surface area is considered as appropriate input space, while for longer interactions (up to 10 seconds), the front areas above the trouser pockets are preferred.

What do you think? How would you improve this idea?
