Baudisch and a group of researchers from Hasso-Plattner Institute have something important for us. The Invisible iPhone!! We are listening to the rumors but they have the prototype ready for us. They have also published a video which shows the invisible iPhone prototype. The technology moves your iPhone touch screen to your hand’s palm.
Mounted on a tripod, a camera can judge the movements of your finger across your palm. Of course supported with a software which then determines the possible actions on your iPhone device. The signals are then transmitted to the physical (actual) phone using a WiFi radio.
It is different to MIT’s sixth sense interface in a way that you do not need to learn a new gestures’s dictionary. Instead it is dependent on the muscle memory.
The research also reveals that most of the iPhone users can determine the position of two third of the applications they use on their palms with accuracy. Although a lot of bulky stuff is involved but its a prototype and they are hoping to make it more comfortable.
All credit goes to the researchers Sean Gustafson, Christian Holz and Prof. Patrick Baudisch at the Human Computer Interaction Lab at Hasso Plattner Institute, Potsdam, Germany.
