Augmenting Media Experiences with Affective Haptics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific


Within our Distributed and Interactive Systems research group, we focus on affective haptics, where we design and develop systems that can enhance human emotional states through the sense of touch. Such artificial haptic sensations can potentially augment and enhance our mind, body, and (virtual) social connections. In three works—voice communication, news consumption, and virtual embodiment—we explore the effects of enriching media experiences with thermal and vibrotactile affective haptics, and how such stimulation influences our affective perception.
