Microsoft wants to use your flesh as an input device.

Microsoft researchers are working on something called "Skinput," which is the use of human skin as an input device. In this case, a display is projected on the arm. When the user taps, a computer analyzes the sound in the body (which varies according to bone density and other factors) to determine which button to push. The company plans to unveil all this in April. (Props)
