Every one of us is frustrated of navigating between different apps on tiny screens of smartwatches. Why should we confine ourselves within the constraints of smaller screen sizes?

Though in the course of time, our smartphones have gotten bigger and bigger in terms of screen size, but the screen of smartwatches are still smaller. But to make them look elegant and fashionable, we can't have bigger screens on our wrist. Recently a team at the Future Interfaces Group has come up with an innovative solution to this problem.

They have come up with a new technology in smartwatches and it is called Skintrack. With their brand new approach, they are gonna make your skin act as a touchscreen.It will also enable your skin to act as buttons and slider.

This remarkable innovation will definitely make Apple Watch run for their money.
