This project proposes the use of a (hands-free) breathing interface for mobile phones as an alternative interaction technology for people with disabilities. It attempts to explore the processing of the audio from the microphone in mobile phones to trigger and launch software events. A proof of concept of this work is demonstrated by the implementation and demonstration of a mobile application prototype that enables users to perform basic operations on the phone, such as calling through “puffing” interaction.
This work was accepted in MobileHCI 2012 and I presented it in San Francisco. This was my first time at MobileHCI 🙂
