Microsoft's Skinput

This story is from CNN: Microsoft's Skinput turns hands, arms into buttons
  • Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University develop a prototype called Skinput
  • The system turns a person's arm and hand into a virtual keyboard
  • Users tap their fingers together and touch their forearm to send messages to gadgets
  • The prototype won't be commercially available for two to seven years


  1. it's a passive or resistive touch screen that only allows input from a single touch point. The tablet also has a Wacom Penabled digitizer, so I'm not limited to the passive touch screen.

  2. This is amazing technology, I don't even want to begin to know how they do that. This might sell really well if our economy starts booming again.
