BREAKING NEWS !!! Wall++ Conductive Paint Converts Walls Into Huge Touchpads


smart appliances within homes are
nothing new and have now become a regular addition to our furniture
however one application which uses capacitive paint is now looking to
change our interactions into room scale dimensions wall plus plus as a new
concept to provide a low-cost sensor which can be easily added to any wall or
flat surface and is capable of sensing touch gestures and movement we present
wall plus plus a low-cost sensing approach that allows walls to become a
smart infrastructure instead of merely separating spaces walls can now enhance
rooms with sensing and interactivity our wall treatment and sensing Hardware can
track users touch and gestures as well as estimate body pose if they are close
by capturing airborne electromagnetic noise we can also detect what appliances
are active and where they are located human environments are typify by walls
homes offices schools museums hospitals and pretty much every indoor context one
can imagine his walls in many cases they make up a majority of readily accessible
indoor surface area and yet they are static their primary function is to be a
wall separating spaces and hiding infrastructure we present wall plus plus
a low-cost sensing approach that allows walls to become a smart infrastructure
instead of merely separating spaces walls can now enhance rooms with sensing
and interactivity our wall treatment and sensing hardware can track users touch
and gestures as well as estimate body pose if they are close by capturing
airborne electromagnetic noise we can also detect wood appliances are active
and where they are located through a series of evaluations we demonstrate
wall plus plus can enable robust scale interactive and context-aware
applications
