Wrist Flicker

About the Wrist Flicker

With WristFlicker, we detect wrist movement through sets of stretch sensors embedded in clothing. Our system supports wrist rotation (pronation/supination), and both wrist tilts (flexion/extension and ulnar/radial deviation). Each wrist movement is measured by two opposing stretch sensors, mimicking the counteracting movement of muscles. We discuss interaction techniques that allow a user to control a music player through this lightweight input.

This project was featured at the 2012 Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction conference.
