SkinTrack Turns Your Skin into a Touch Interface [Video]

Did you ever feel like you’re bored by the input options of a smartphone or a smartwatch? Yang Zhang, Junhan Zhou, Gierad Laput and Chris Harrison from the Carnegie Mellon University are working with the Human-Computer Interaction Institute on a new way of controlling software. Their development is called SkinTrack and with it they use a high frequency AC signal to turn your skin into an XXL touch panel. Check out the video below for the demo of this new technology!
