Abstract

Using social networks, users are able to share visual, audial and audio-visual information by making use of their smartphone's built-in camera and microphone. However, up until now, the sharing of corresponding haptic experiences has not been possible. Here we present a haptic-information recording and displaying attachment for smartphone, or 'a(touch)ment', that allows the user to instantly record, as shown in fig. 1, and share haptic experiences, for example, in situations illustrated in fig. 2.
