Abstract

At present, there are very few methods to utilize the vibration function in personal digital assistant (PDA) devices, which are simple, but poor in variation. These methods do not effectively use the vibration function's potential. In our research, we aim to maximize the use of vibration function for communication using PDA devices with the objective of adding a new value to the PDA's vibration function. We evaluate the relationships between vibrations and images evoked by them. From the results, we found the vibration patterns corresponding to each eight main type of feeling words in Japanese.
