By utilizing human-centered design principles, our team has developed a pathway to the widespread use of Samsung’s stretchable electronic technology as a peripheral for augmented reality (AR). Our device gives users the capability to enter text and control an AR operating system privately, using subtle and discrete hand motions.
- Text Entry Scheme
Through testing and research our team developed a novel text entry scheme specifically for our device. The scheme divides the alphabet into 5 blocks of letters each mapping to one of your fingers. To select a letter you simply bend your finger to select a block and then bend your finger again to select a specific letter inside that block.
- Stretchable Electronics
At 15 microns thick, Samsung’s stretchable electronics technology is thinner than a strand of human hair. Acting as a non-invasive second skin, the technology has a variety of sensing and connectivity applications to create on the body IoT devices.
