Abstract

A system that allows a user to easily operate a computer or tablet while working on a desk was devised. In particular, the desk is changed into an input interface that can detect the touch of a hand. A device that acquires the position data of the hand and a software program that operates the computer or tablet using this device were developed. The device, which uses the office desk as a touch interface, was constructed. The device was used in an application for navigating images displayed on a screen, even while doing other work on the desk (e.g., drawing). In future work, the sensors in the device will be improved, and various applications utilizing the device will be developed and experimentally evaluated.
