Everything Is A Touchpad

Wed October 19, 2011


From chrisharrisoncmu

Every teacher and student these days know about interactive white boards, such as SmartBoard, that projects an image onto a white board and allows touchscreen functionality. Students love using these interactive smart boards, but they have to walk up to the screen to manipulate objects on the screen as they answer questions.

Imagine if each student could have his and her own mini smartboard projected onto the student’s desk or even hand. The student would not even have to leave hir or her chair to answer a question on the smart board.

OmniTouch is a wearable projection system, developed by Chris Harrison, that enables interactive multitouch applications on most any surfaces. It is currently a shoulder-worn system that allows the wearer to use their hands, arms and legs as graphical, interactive surfaces. Other surfaces can be books, walls and tables.

The concept behind this technology is similar to how our eyes see: just as visible light bounces off an object back onto our eyes, allowing us to see — similarly, radar sends radio waves to a target, bounce off it and return back to a receiver.
