    Research Projects

    Nokia Plug and Touch, which is part of a gesture related project in Multimodal and Multimedia User Interaction Team , was demonstrated at Nokia World 2010, London, UK. There are many news about it at Engadget, Slashgear, fonearena etc and Youtube.
    Plug & Touch is a gesture based technology that can convert any screen into touchable, which is a co-work with Xu Lei and Wang Kongqiao.
