Beauty Technology : Designing Seamless Interfaces for by Katia Vega, Hugo Fuks

By Katia Vega, Hugo Fuks

The expanding advances in electronics permits smaller and extra robust units, bringing wearable computing towards fact. despite the fact that, so much wearable pcs are very distinctive and put on clothes and niknaks. This e-book attempts to take on this phenomenon by means of introducing a brand new wearable computing subfield referred to as good looks know-how.

By utilizing the body's floor as an interactive platform, the mixing of expertise into attractiveness items is explored and will be utilized on to ones epidermis, fingernails, and hair including new performance to good looks items utilizing expertise in a private, seamless and classy method. An interdisciplinary method is taken, exploring the layout of attractiveness applied sciences reminiscent of Conductive make-up, Tech Nails, Hairware and FX e-makeup that allows you to create novel interfaces for Human desktop Interaction.

After finishing the chemical process, the hair extensions are weighted. 3 shows each of the hair extensions initial weight, the final one and the percentage of weight variation. The hair extensions got an average of 21 % more of their original weight. Electrical resistances of each hairpiece are measured with a multimeter, showing that they are highly conductive with a surface resistivity of less than 5 Ω/sq. Fig. 11 shows our first prototype for demonstrating the feasibility of Hairware as an output device.

When humans initiate a voluntary action, the brain sends an electrochemical signal that traverses our nervous system through the spinal cord and eventually reaches the motor neurons. They stimulate specific muscles causing movement or force [137]. Non-vision techniques for identifying voluntary actions include EMG that measures the potential difference between two muscles. There are some known issues associated with using EMG [138] such as the placement of leads on the face inhibiting the movements of the subject, ambiguities in the measurements due to the proximity of the muscles and lack of specific places to attach the electrodes.

Therefore, given that the human body is conductive and the average internal resistance of the human trunk is ~100 Ω [108], touching Hairware will affect capacitance resulting in a different charging time. Concealed Interaction Weiser [50] envisioned a ubiquitous computing paradigm where technology is integrated into everyday experiences in a way that computers vanish into the background. In this way, the major challenge of the Disappearing Computer paradigm [109] is the development of new invisible technologies that fit the task so well that the tool becomes a part of the task [110].
