"Active Click" is a new interface mechanism for addling tactile feedback to touch panels. A small actuator is attached to a body of PDA or the backside of a touch panel. The tactile feedback, created by driving the actuator with a short pulse, is perceived by the grasping hand or tapping finger-tip when the panel is tapped. Active Click is effective in(More)
ABSTRUCT This paper presents a human pointing action recognizing system called Finger-Pointer. This system recognizes pointing actions and simple hand forms in real-time by an image sequence processing of stereoscopic TV cameras. The operator does not need to wear any special devices such as Data-Glove. Fast image processing algorithms employed in this(More)
A headphone-type gaze detector for a full-time wearable interface is proposed. It uses a Kalman filter to analyze multiple channels of EOG signals measured at the locations of headphone cushions to estimate gaze direction. Evaluations show that the average estimation error is 4.4® (horizontal) and 8.3® (vertical), and that the drift is suppressed(More)
An eartip made of conductive rubber that also realizes bio-potential electrodes is proposed for a daily-use earphone-based eye gesture input interface. Several prototypes, each with three electrodes to capture Electrooculogram (EOG), are implemented on earphones and examined. Experiments with one subject over a 10 day period reveal that all prototypes(More)
