Abstract

We designed and implemented a tool that makes it possible for children to create haptic content using sensors, and tactile sensation. We developed TECHTILE Bits and confirmed that children can understand and create haptic content using TECHTILE Bits. The combination of the TECHTILE toolkit and littleBits, makes it possible for children to create haptic contents easily. We tried to the workshop to confirm the effect of TECHITILE Bits. As the result, it is possible that TECHTILE Bits has the potential to express the world of children’s imagination through tangible objects.
