This proposal for smart glasses recognizes the wearer touching their nose to act as a remote control for their phone

Developers in the technology industry have had a difficult time making smart glasses viable for an average person to use throughout their day. A new paper called Itchy Nose: Discreet Gesture Interaction using EOG Sensors in Smart Eyewear proposes a technique for using smart glasses like a remote control by making gestures to the nose.

In the paper, the authors detail how the smart glasses’ programming can distinguish the differences from the wearer flicking, holding and rubbing their nose with a finger. For example, the wearer could see messages from their connected phone pop up on the glasses lens and flick their nose to dismiss the notification without making an obvious movement. The Itchy Nose paper describes the smart glasses recognizing the hand gestures 90% of the time.

The project was created by computer scientists from all the world who attended KAIST University, University of St. Andrews, Georgia Institute of Technology and Keio University.
