SIGCHI is the world’s largest affiliation of pros who work within the analysis of human-technology and human-computer interplay. For the CHI 2021 Virtual Conference, DoYoung Lee, Jiwan Kim, Ian Oakley explored wearable, cellular, one-handed typing.

by way of ACM SIGCHI

Typing on wearables whereas situationally impaired, similar to whereas strolling, is difficult. Nevertheless, whereas HCI analysis on wearable typing is various, current work focuses on stationary eventualities and fine-grained enter that may seemingly carry out poorly when customers are on-the-go. To handle this concern we discover single-handed wearable typing utilizing inter-hand touches between the thumb and fingers, a modality we argue will probably be sturdy to the bodily disturbances inherent to enter whereas cellular. We first look at the impression of strolling on efficiency of those touches, noting no vital variations in accuracy or pace, then feed our examine knowledge right into a multi-objective optimization course of with the intention to design keyboard layouts (for each 5 and ten keys) able to supporting fast, correct, comfy, and unambiguous typing. A ultimate examine checks these layouts towards QWERTY baselines and stories efficiency enhancements of as much as 10.45% WPM and 39.44% WER when customers sort whereas strolling.
