Samsung Extends Smartwatch UI

Samsung has filed a patent for a smartwatch, which would project the UI onto the user’s hand, wrist or forearm. Another, separate patent shows the UI projected onto ‘any’ surface. Sensors would be used to detect interaction with the projected elements.

Other companies are working on similar ways to extend a small-screen UI onto a larger surface (SkinTrack Turns a User’s Skin into an Auxiliary Smartwatch Touchscreen). (TA)

ASU of China also made a lot of noise about a similar projector at CES this year. (ASU Brings Big Backers, but Fails with Us) (BR)
