Enabling Interactive Bathroom Entertainment Using Embedded Touch Sensors in the Bathtub
We propose a new entertaining bathroom environment with applications controlled via capacitive touch sensors embedded in the bathtub. The bathtub touch sensor system, called TubTouch, provides a new touch user interface near to the edge of the bathtub for persons who are bathing. TubTouch can be used to control both existing bathroom equipment, such as water heaters, jacuzzis, TVs, audio, and lighting, and a variety of new applications. In this paper, we give an overview of the TubTouch system and discuss its entertainment applications used in daily life.
