Keyboard Surface as a Trackpad
Advisor: Prof. Anind Dey Collaborator: Julian Ramos
We explored a new space for interaction on laptops -- the keyboard surface. We employed computer vision technology to detect the 3D position of the fingertip, thus converting the keyboard surface to a trackpad. Fitts law experiments show that the speed of our design is much faster than the trackpad, almost as fast as the mouse.
