Tech Trends: Smartwatch makes your skin an extension of the touchscreen

 

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — If you find the screen on your smartwatch or wearable too small, our Tech Trends reporter Gabe Slate shows us how researchers at Carnegie Mellon university are working on a solution.

It’s called “skin track.” This special smartwatch being developed turns your arm into a touchscreen.

Your skin becomes an extension of your device.

There are two components. A signal-emitting ring and a sensing wristband.

Watch the above video to see Gabe’s full Tech Trends report.

Could this solve the problem of the tiny screen?
