ACM CHI 2016, San Jose, USA is the most important conferences in world on human computer interfaces held on 7-12 May. Professor Mike Fraser and Dr Anne Roudaut along with the team of researchers in the Bristol University’s Bristol Interaction Group (BIG) group have presented 6 papers in the international conference. Many new researchers discussed the Interacting with upcoming technology in near future. ACM CHI 2016 conference also brings you together the researchers from the corporations, universities and start-ups across the world.
Researchers also presented about many number of future applications that includes PowerShake, EMPress, Investigating text legibility, GauntLev and many more. The PowerShake is one of the most modern power transfer interactions technology for the mobile devices. PowerShake is one of the current devices with limited battery life that lasts for a day. Making the critical tasks like emergency phone call is possible through the PowerShake. It is the exploration of power with shareable commodity for wearable devices and mobile. This device uses the power sharing with advance systems.
EMPress is the advanced practical hand gesture classification that has the wrist mounted electromyography along with the pressure sensing. This Practical wearable gesture also has the tracking gesture so that its sensors are aligned with the existing ergonomic device. The recent research papers also states that combining pressure data and EMG sensed at wrist could easily support the hand gestures accurate classification. EMPress technique also senses the finger movements, rotations around forearm and wrist and many more features are included in the process.
GauntLev is the wearable device that manipulates the free-floating objects. GauntLev tool could easily generate the remote forces to allow the hands of the individual to handle any type of dangerous materials in the adrift objects. Without any contact of the products in the zero environments or constrictions, the objects can be handled with extreme care. Gauntlet of Levitation also has the capturing, moving, combining and transferring particles in the effective manner.
