In this paper, the design of an armband-type non-touch space input mouse for human computer interface is presented. Demand for a non-touch type input system has been increasing with the development of large-display technology. One of the non-touch type input system is a system based on gesture recognition. There is a lot of research on gesture recognition systems based on vision, but the presented device has advantages in terms of accuracy. The globe type input system is already developed, but the users do not want restrictions on finger actions. Unlike a glove type device, an armband device type does not constrain finger movements. We designed an armband- type space input mouse by using arm movement and wrist gesture actions.
