Abstract

This paper presents some preliminary results on RemoTouch, a system allowing to perform experiences of remote touch. The system consists of an avatar equipped with an instrumented glove and a user wearing tactile displays allowing to feel the remote tactile interaction. The main features of RemoTouch are that it is a wearable system and that a human avatar is used to collect remote tactile interaction data. New paradigms of tactile communication can be designed around the RemoTouch system. Two simple experiences are reported to show the potential of the proposed remote touch architecture.
