Holz and Baudisch propose a new model for touch detection using ultra-sensitive touchscreens that can detect fingerprints, increasing accuracy to 1.8 times that of capacitive sensing. This is one more step toward smaller yet more intuitive touchscreens and fewer missed buttons.
Patrick Baudisch, an HCI researcher at Hasso Plattner Institute in Berlin, describes some creative ideas for breaking down the fat finger size limitation on screen and button sizes. One technology he has worked on, nano touch, is described below.
