  • Touch is vital to us

    Touch is a complex sense

    Touch has rich effects

  • Apples



  • My learnings

    The wrist is a efficient place for receiving haptic signals. Vibro-haptic stimuli are very effective. Context is important for understanding thouch.

    1.5 inch is the resolution distance for incremental feel.

  • A watch. A wristband. A glass. A hat. A shirt. A belt. A ring. A glove. A sock. A sleeve. A wearable.

  • Navigate with Belty

    Added functions

  • Making distance bearable

  • Haptic gear

    Myo band (1)

  • Design the haptic notifications for a journey of a service/task

  • Lyft shared drive

    Social car sharingPlan a route and someone doing a similar ride finds youAll mobile use

  • Think on possible haptic moments Choose one or two moments How will these moments feel

    Sketch them on the paper.

    And it is all about the discussion.

  • Design for adaptive



  • The things are the mediators, the conversational piece for your

    service to build stories & relations.

  • Haptics are part of a dialog, part of adaptive services that function in a

    rule based system.

  • The touchpoints of haptics are the notifications of a service to

    mediate dialogs.

  • co-design adaptive
