Control and Communication in the computing environment with diverse equipment could be clumsy, obtrusive, and frustrating even just for finding the right input device or getting familiar with the input interface. In this paper, we present Magic Ring (MR), a finger ring shape input device using inertial sensor to detect the subtle finger gestures and routine daily activities. As a self-contained, always-available, and hands-free input device, we believe that MR will enable diverse applications… Expand
