Arata Jingu | 神宮 亜良太

I am a second-year Ph.D. student at Human Computer Interaction Lab at Saarland University, advised by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Steimle.

My interests are: (1) redefining computer interfaces with haptics, (2) making haptic information shareable worldwide, and (3) enhancing future entertainment.

Lips as Interface

My three papers (CHI'23, UIST'21, WHC'21) explored "Lips as Interface". Lips have high potential as I/O interfaces: dexterous, inherent in humans, sensitive to touch, electrically conductive, valley-shaped capable of converging ultrasonic waves, close to other intraoral parts, and easy to access from the outside environment. Just as our fingers have become a touch I/O interface in today's touchscreens, we might witness how our lips EVOLVE in the following decades.
