From the paper at CHI this week:
The Generalized Perceived Input Point Model and How to Double Touch Accuracy by Extracting Fingerprints
Patrick Baudisch et. al. has figured out a way to dramatically increase touch accuracy by measuring the finger angle.
They argue that by using new techniques, we could make smaller buttons for touch screens. Somewhere in the neighbourhood of half the width and half the height. Today, the standard recommendation minimum size for touch screen buttons is 1x1cm.
