Wrist Player: A Smartwatch Gesture Controller for Smart TVs

Abstract

Emerging technology on mobile and wearable market, smartwatches have embedded movement sensors whose potential is yet to be fully explored. This paper proposes an interaction method with smart TVs via gestures performed by person’s wrist using a smartwatch. Detailed architecture and implementation for a complete prototype, named Wrist Player, is presented. A user study is also conducted, in order to evaluate the prototype performance and the user’s interest on the proposal. Results show that the method works very well, with participants reporting having a good experience with the prototype. We present our insights on the concept, challenges faced in our research and ideas for future studies.
