Implanted user interfaces
May 11, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
To see how well these devices might operate under the skin, researchers implanted them in an arm from a lightly embalmed cadaver, between the skin and the underlying fatty tissue. They also developed artificial patches of skin made from silicone that people could wear on their forearms and walk around with -- these covered the devices, simulating implantation.
"We showed these can all still operate through the skin," said Autodesk researcher Tovi Grossman. "These results open up a lot of possibilities."
The scientists will present their work Monday May 7 at the CHI conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in Austin, Texas.
