Abstract

We present HapticAid, a wearable system that enhances haptic sensations. The system consists of a wearable skin vibration sensor that is placed at the middle phalanx of a finger, a processor that processes haptic information, and a wrist-worn haptic actuator that provides haptic feedback. We envision three application areas with the HapticAid system: enhance, i.e., amplify and enhance haptic sensations; enchant. i.e., experience new haptic feedback when interacting with passive objects; and empathise, i.e., communication of haptic experiences that allows connecting and empathising with others' haptic sensations.
