Edgetouch - (CHI 14)

Project summary:
To solve the 'fat finger' problems in wearables of watch form-factors, this project presents a novel solution based on sensing touches to the perpendicular edges of a device featuring a front-mounted screen. In the project, we developed working prototype and ran a user studies characterizing grasps, targeting performance and types of input users envisage performing with Edgetouch.

My part:
I participated in user mapping study to elicit the kinds of gestures and interactions that users naively perform on the EdgeTouch hardware. For this, I built a some interfaces using Edgetouch, and conduct an elicitation study.
