Abstract

Skinput is a new technology which simply means skin + input. It is an input sensing technology that is
created to use skin’s surface as an input device .our skin is capable of producing natural and unique vibrations when
tapped at different places. Bio-Acoustics sensing forms the base for the Skinput technology to pinpoint different
finger-taps on the skin. When it is augmented with a Pico-projector, the device is capable of providing direct
manipulation, graphical user interface on the body. It’s an innovative skin based technology which allows person’s to
use their own hands, arms as touch screens by sensing natural mechanical vibrations that propagates in different
parts of skin. For sensing body, armband is used. For the Skinput technology, it is not necessary for the skin to be
invasively instrumented with sensors, tracking markers or any other things.
