Title:


    TECHTILE toolkit - A prototyping tool for designing haptic media -

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 22


Description:


    “TECHTILE” is a fundamental concept by combining “TECHnology” with “tacTILE” perception/expression. Our aim is to disseminate the haptic technologies as the third media in the field of art, design, and education and extends the conventional “multi-media” which consists of visual information and auditory information.

    There has been various haptic devices proposed so far, but most of them are still in emerging stage. To attract the interest of potential users of haptics such as designers, educators, and students, it is necessary to provide easy-to-make and easy-to-use haptic device. We then developed an introductory haptic device called “TECHTILE toolkit”.
