Project Concept A jacket outfitted with a set of pressure sensors that provides a tactile, convenient, and discrete interface to control applications running on a phone. (e.g. A person wearing the jacket could touch their right shoulder in order to play/pause the music they are listening to.) The smart jacket would communicate wirelessly with the phone and thus would also allow for remote control of apps from many feet away.
Allow users to control music and handle interrupting calls without touching the device.
Ensure reliable pressure sensor operation.
React gracefully to sensor malfunction or loss of wireless signal.
Maintain physical robustness.
