In this paper, we propose mobile HapticAid, a wearable haptic augmentation system which combines a polyvinlidene flouride (PVDF) skin vibration sensor, a mobile platform such as iOS devices and TECHTILE amplifier. It can enhance haptic perception through a PVDF skin vibration sensor and vibro-tactile feedback. This system is small enough to be portable. The participants will be able to experience the enhancement of touch objects.
