Abstract

Wearable devices such as the wristwatch-type smart watch, are becoming smaller and easier to implement. However, user interaction using wearable displays is limited owing to the small display area. On larger displays such as tablet computers, the user has more space to interact with the device and present various inputs. A wearable device has a small display area, which clearly decreases its ability to read finger gestures. We propose an augmented wearable display to expand the user input area over the skin. A user can employ finger gestures on the skin to control a wearable display. The prototype device has been implemented using techniques that sense skin deformation by measuring the distance between the skin and the wearable (wristwatch-type) device. With this sensing technique, we show three types of input functions, and create input via the skin around the wearable display and the device.
