All 19 presentations are accessible on-demand in the virtual platform from 6 December 2021 to 11 March 2022.
Out of which, 13 Emerging Technologies will have physical exhibits onsite in Hall E, Tokyo International Forum from 15 - 17 December 2021.
Live demonstrations and Q&As for the respective presentations will be taking place at the specified Date/Time below.
Description: We demonstrate a method capable of turning a textured surface into an opportunistic input interface using a machine learning model pre-trained on the acoustic signal generated while scratching different types of fabric. A single and brief audio recording then suffices to characterize both the texture and the gesture that originates.
