Gelly is a mutual capacitance based sensor that can sense touch localization, proximity, pressure, and shear. Our project aims to guide the development path of the Gelly and explore the application space of this new technology.

Flexible smartphones can use life-like movement to communicate information to users.

Hop, run, skip, and jump your way to better health (and context-aware applications).


To guide walking rate, we detect cadence and cue individual steps with minimal attentional impact.
