Carnegie Mellon prototype shows interface value of smartwatch

The smartwatch is an interesting form factor but a Carnegie Mellon team that is focused on interfaces noted its limitations and addressed the size challenge. Because the device is worn on the wrist, the sophistication of interactions that people can perform on it is limited. The team suggested a workable approach that can make the smartwatch capable of offering enhanced convenience in information access and retrieval. The Carnegie Mellon team came up with a smartwatch that uses the watch face as the multi-degree of freedom interface without having to occlude the screen with fingers.
