Abstract

Advances in sensing technologies allow for using the forearm
as a touch surface to give input to off-skin displays. However,
it is unclear how users perceive the mapping between an onskin input area and an off-skin display area. We empirically
describe such mappings to improve on-skin interaction. We
collected discrete and continuous touch data in a study where
participants mapped display content from an AR headset, a
smartwatch, and a desktop display to their forearm. We model
those mappings and estimate input accuracy from the spreads
of touch data. Subsequently, we show how to use the models
for designing touch surfaces to the forearm for a given display
area, input type, and touch resolution.
