Abstract

'Future Affair' is a project to explore affective touch and interpersonal connection using tactile sculptures and robotics. Our initial work focuses on C-Tactile afferent-optimal touch, with one individual stimulating the other through a mediated stroking touch experience. Here, we describe the first steps in creating a socially distanced intimate connection between two individuals.
