Ubiquitous Computing is the idea of embedding computation onto everyday objects of the environment we live in. It’s the approach towards making technology and computation available everywhere thereby making people interact with abundant information around them in a more natural and friendly manner. Our project, the palm display system is one such approach of using one’s palm as the graphical user interface enabling the user to interact with it using his/her fingertip. We have implemented this project using computer vision techniques. In this study, we describe the details of the palm display system and explain several issues regarding the challenges in implementation and show the result using a sample photo viewer application. The main idea behind the project is to detect the interaction using shadow based techniques without the use of a fingertip marker.
