Description
Abstract:

A new interface concept for mobile computing, the ‘l+dl-time Wearable Interface”, is proposed. By wearing tiny interface devices similar to watches or glasses all the time, the user can operate PDAs at any time desired. As the first study of such an interface, we propose the finger ring style chord keyboard named “Fingering”. FingeRing can be used with any typing surface such as the waist or thigh; no subsidiary devices like keys or pads are needed. FingeRing can be used anytime, anywhere, and in any situation including standing or walking.
