Thermal Touch: an augmented reality interface via body heat

Thermal Touch: an augmented reality interface via body heat

Computer vision and augmented reality has the potential to change the way in which we interact with digital information. metaio - Augmented Reality Solutions  is experimenting with Thermal Touch, a prototype that explores ways to interact with smartphones and laptops using the residual heat from a finger when a surface is touched.

Utilizing a thermal camera to detect the heat from a touch, along with a standard camera to determine the location of the object being touched, Thermal Touch could enable the use of a wide variety of surfaces as an interactive touch interface.

What potential applications do you see for this technology?
