Sensorial perception (2014-15) (2014-15) (2015-16) (2015-16)

Haptics is communication by touch and in a virtual world that translates to what you see is what you feel. However, the reality is often far from the truth as our human sensorial perception can be fooled as a result of complimentary visceral information.

This project is to investigate the different technologies as sensorial substitutions for virtual worlds. The concept is such that digital data can be interacted with in the same manner as physical items.

The work will involve developing a test bed for sensorial perception with any one or a combination of exsiting or new haptic technologies and techniques, acoustics, capacitance, air, etc.
