Touché : Enhancing Touch Interaction on Humans, Screens, Liquids, and Everyday Objects

Description : 

Disney Research proposes Touché a novel Swept Frequency Capacitive Sensing technique that can not only detect a touch event, but also recognize complex configurations of the human hands and body.

Such contextual information significantly enhances touch interaction in a broad range of applications, from conventional touchscreens to unique contexts and materials. 

For example, in their explorations they add touch and gesture sensitivity to the human body and liquids

Below you will see a demonstration of the rich capabilities of Touché with five example setups from different application domains and conduct experimental studies that show gesture classification accuracies of 99% achievable with this technology.
