Help collect data for a research project at ETH Zürich with the goal to find new and innovative ways of interacting with computers. We try to detect touch interactions with any surface just using the accelerometer and gyroscope data of the Apple Watch. Turning any surface into a virtual touch screen would enable new ways to interact in virtual- or augmented reality, but could also be used for novel interaction methods with your current devices.

For every task you perform, all touch interactions (such as touch location) on the iPad and IMU data (accelerometer and gyroscope) on the Apple Watch get recorded.
While you help gather data, you can experience a unique way how the iPad and Apple Watch interact doing different tasks like taking quizzes, playing a bubble game, or performing transcription.
