This demo presents iSkin, a stretchable and visually customizable sensor that capture touch input on the human body for mobile computing. iSkin is a thin skin-worn sensor overlay, made of biocompatible materials. The sensor can be produced in different shapes and sizes and is visually customizable to account for the user’s aesthetic preferences. It can be worn on various locations on the human body, including the finger, the back of the hand, and the ear. Each sensor overlay supports single and multiple touch areas, which can be arranged to more complex multi-touch widgets. Together, these attributes allow for novel device concepts that support fast and direct on-body input for mobile computing.
