The Gesture Watch: A Wireless Contact-free Gesture based Wrist Interface

Jungsoo Kim, Jiasheng He, Kent Lyons, Thad Starner
2007 2007 11th IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers  
We introduce the Gesture Watch, a mobile wireless device worn on a user's wrist that allows hand gesture control of other devices.  ...  Overall, we attained a recognition accuracy of 95.5% and found that the Gesture Watch worked well in both indoor and outdoor environments and while mobile.  ...  Figure 13 shows this sensor and indicates how they may be incorporated into a wristwatch. Conclusions The Gesture Watch is a new gesture based contact-free wristwatch interface.  ...

Tactile Feedback for Above-Device Gesture Interfaces

Euan Freeman, Stephen Brewster, Vuokko Lantz
2014 Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction - ICMI '14  
For example, users could gesture over a mobile phone or wearable without having to use the touchscreen. We look at how above-device interfaces can also give feedback in the space over the device.  ...  Above-device gesture interfaces let people interact in the space above mobile devices using hand and finger movements.  ...  We asked participants to wear the watch prototype on their dominant wrist, the opposite wrist from where most participants wore their own watch.  ...

Belly gestures

Dong-Bach Vo, Eric Lecolinet, Yves Guiard
2014 Proceedings of the 8th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction Fun, Fast, Foundational - NordiCHI '14  
We argue this surface is especially appropriate for eyes-free interaction because the belly offers a large surface, which is relatively stable even when walking or running.  ...  We highlight the advantages of interacting with this surface and present a study that evaluates how users perform gestures on their abdomen.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was realized as part of the Quaero Programme, funded by OSEO, French State agency for innovation.  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 27th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology - UIST '14  
Using an array of force sensitive resistors (FSRs) worn around the wrist, the interface can distinguish subtle finger pinch gestures with high accuracy (>80%) and speed.  ...  The system is trained to classify gestures from subtle tendon movements on the wrist. We demonstrate that WristFlex is a complete system that works wirelessly in realtime.  ...  We are used to wearing wrist watches and bracelets, and the wrist is already used for a number of smart-phone-connected accessories such as the Galaxy Gear watch and the Fitbit activity monitor.  ...

A haptic wristwatch for eyes-free interactions

Jerome Pasquero, Scott J. Stobbe, Noel Stonehouse
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '11  
The wristwatch we have built uses a custom-made piezoelectric actuator combined with sensors to create a natural, inconspicuous, gesture-based interface.  ...  Taken together, results from the experiments and the validation process indicate that a wrist accessory can be effectively used to perform discreet, closed-loop, eyes-free interactions with a mobile device  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The authors would like to thank Steven Fyke, Michael, DeFazio, Ryan Walker, Jason Griffin, Sasha Papo, Kevin Orr and Wes Jacobs for their support in the design and implementation of the  ...

Textile Capacitive Sensor Arrays with Hidden Markove Model and Dynamic Time Warping

2016 International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)  
To overcome this problem, in this paper, we proposed the design and implementation of non-contact proximity gesture recognition system using textile capacitive sensor arrays.  ...  This system is personalized to the user; this also allows the personalized selection of gesture and recognize gestures with varying complexity with less user training.  ...  Depending on the surface underlying. We also can create a touch-based swipe interface, in this the characters can be drawn directly on the fabric surface.  ...
