04.05.2013 German national radio station Deutschlandfunk reports on our research presented at CHI: http://www.dradio.de/dlf/sendungen/computer/2096779/

01.05.2013 Poster presentation at CHI.

10.02.2013 Our WiP was accepted. Along with the one from Taiwan and a workshop paper on the same topic by Jürgen Steimle et al., there will now be 3 (!) presentations on fingernail displays at CHI 2013. Obviously, a topic whose time has come.

22.01.2013 Apparently, researchers at National Taiwan University had the same idea and got their paper "NailDisplay: Bringing an Always-Available Visual Display To Fingertips" accepted as a note for CHI 2013. They also suggest using a fingernail display for mitigating the fat thumb problem. No real evaluation conducted :(.

09.01.2013 Submitted paper for CHI2013 WIP, presenting the concept and discussing research directions.

04.01.2013 Working on draft for CHI 2013 WIP.

03.01.2013 Soldered new connector for OLED.
