Title:


    Mag-B: Tactile Sand Play Using an Interactive Magnetic Display

Presenter(s):



Description:


    This project describes the installation of an interactive sand work, plus a workshop to create a device called ‘Mag-B’, which presents a tactile experience using an interactive magnetic display. We have developed a multi-display by using tactile and visual electromagnetic interaction as a power source for tactile presentation. The goal of this project is to create and experience interaction technology and tactile expression, and facilitate the understanding of haptic communication through a workshop. This workshop developed from an earlier electronic work created in 2010. This paper describes the development of both an interactive tactile display and the Mag-B workshop (Figure 1).
