MilboxTouch

Abstract

In this paper, we propose ''ExtensionSticker", a striped pattern sticker that can extend touch interface by simply attaching the sticker to a touch panel display. This sticker has multiple conductive lines, and when the user touches on the sticker, a touch input can be generated. This method is not only touch input as specif.c locations, but allows for continuous touch input such as scrolling operation. This allows a user to prototype an interface to extend touch panel devices easily. Furthermore, we experimented on the recognition accuracy of scroll and tap actions using the proposed method.

How to use MilboxTouch

In the case of touch inputs through the extension part are not detected, please try the following.

  1. Hold a MilboxTouch with touching the back of a smartphone as depicted in the photo.
  2. Touch the extension part while keeping (1) condition.

This could improve sensitivity for touch detection and prevent the inoperability problem. We have been reported iPhone(s) having this problem.
