Self-Organized Pixellated Vibrotactile Input-Output Device


We are investigating a novel pixellated vibrotactile device based on the hardware and software infrastructure developed in previous MLE-UL projects. This project, however, introduces the innovation of being both input and output devices for human-computer interaction, simultaneously. The resulting device will be modular, act as both an input and output device, and be self-configuring. Plug-in software will be developed for application authoring in existing commercial and open source packages, and a number of use scenarios will be developed and evaluated.
