The Magic Finger turns any surface into a touch interface. Magic Finger is a research project from Autodesk research in collaboration with theUniversity of Toronto and University of Alberta.
By combining a camera that detects surfaces with one that perceives motion, Canadian university researchers and Autodesk have made a sensor that reads finger gestures based on which part of your body you swipe. The first camera can detect pre-programmed materials like clothing, which would allow finger movements made across your pants or shirt to activate commands that call specific people or compose an email, for instance.
