Beauty Technology: Designing Seamless Interfaces for by Katia Vega, Hugo Fuks

By Katia Vega, Hugo Fuks

The expanding advances in electronics permits smaller and extra robust units, bringing wearable computing in the direction of fact. even though, such a lot wearable desktops are very exotic and put on clothing and accessories. This e-book attempts to take on this phenomenon by way of introducing a brand new wearable computing subfield known as good looks expertise.

By utilizing the body's floor as an interactive platform, the combination of expertise into attractiveness items is explored and will be utilized on to ones dermis, fingernails, and hair including new performance to good looks items utilizing know-how in a private, seamless and classy method. An interdisciplinary strategy is taken, exploring the layout of attractiveness applied sciences akin to Conductive make-up, Tech Nails, Hairware and FX e-makeup that allows you to create novel interfaces for Human laptop Interaction.

In this way, we conceal the interaction with the wearable, creating a concealed interface that consciously makes use of unconscious behaviors (Fig. 14). For example, in a social meeting, a user touches the tip of Hairware to make her phone ring, touches the middle to put her phone in mute mode and touches the top to send a pre-customized message to a colleague. In this way, she will continue participating in the meeting and, at the same time, without being noticed, she will be interacting with her phone.

20 Hairware’s functionalities. (a) send a message, (b) record a conversation, (c) send your location, (d) take a selfie. Image reproduced with permission from Rejane Matos Lessons Learned This project presented Hairware, conductive hair extensions with embedded hardware that can be used as both, input and output device, looking like regular hair extensions. Our approach modified artificial hair extensions into a conductive material using a chemical process. Other materials such as conductive ink and gel hair present conductivity but get easily dried or taken away when touched.
