Abstract:
    A technique which allows your skin to be used as an input surface. In our prototype system, we choose to focus on the arm (although the technique could be applied elsewhere).
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Size of devices are getting bigger day by day, not easily portable. Many people are not aware that regular surfaces, like tables and walls for example, can be used as an input surface.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People who use smart devices or devices which have less portability ease.
How will the solution works
    Pico projector will display the android screen on the forearm. Acoustic waves will be produced by tapping on the skin. Signals generated by tapping will be captured by bio-acoustic sensors which in turn is connected to a microcontroller over a wifi/bluetooth network. A Software will detect the signal and generate the touch events. Pico projector, microcontrollers and the sensors will be installed inside an armband.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    A smart watch has limited functionalities and a small screen.Sixth Sense,Glove based input systems,EMG, Voice recognition have accuracy limitations and disruptive to tactile sensation.Also they depend on the environmental audio whereas our armband solely depends on the signal generated by tapping.
