DETECTION OF TOUCH AND OBJECTS

When interacting with digital surfaces we usually use fingers and touch, but there are other methods where we can also use detection of objects or codes on top of the surface. 

Current interactive surfaces provide little or no in-formation about which fingers are touching the surface, the amount of pressure exerted, or gestures that occur when not in contact with the surface. These limitations constrain the interaction vocabulary available to interactive surface systems. In our work, we extend the surface interaction space by using muscle sensing to provide complementary information about finger movement and posture.
