Abstract

Human-computer interaction is beginning to involve our bodies in new and rich ways, compared for instance to mouse or touch input. This happens using gestures, movement, wearables, implantable devices, and on-skin sensing. In this talk, I present work from the BodyUI project on the use of the body as user interface, and some of the associated technical and psychological research questions.

The talk will be conducted in English
