MIT researchers have developed a new miniature trackpad for your thumb called NailO, the tiny device is a new kind of wearable that can be used with your smartphone, tablet of your computer.
The video below shows how the NailO thumbnail track pad works and it can be seen working with a range of devices.
According to Cindy Hsin-Liu Kao, an MIT graduate student in media arts and sciences and one of the new paper’s lead authors, the device was inspired by the colorful stickers that some women apply to their nails. “It’s a cosmetic product, popular in Asian countries,” says Kao, who is Taiwanese. “When I came here, I was looking for them, but I couldn’t find them, so I’d have my family mail them to me.”
It certainly looks very interesting from the video, you can find out more details about the NailO thumbnail trackpad over at MIT at the link below.
