Location: Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Inman Room (Lower Level 3)

SKINPUT, a skin-based input system, is designed to overcome the problems of interacting with small mobile devices. The size of human fingers dictates, to a great degree, how small portable devices can get. SKINPUT, the brainchild of Chris Harrison, provides an alternative touch screen for mobile devices. Harrison, along with Desney Tan and Dan Morris will present SKINPUT at the CHI 2010 conference.
