Haptics Demoed at SoNG Outreach Event18th November 2010
Our interdisciplinary research on haptic devices for tactile interaction was showcased at this year's SoNG 'Outreach' event'. The Outreach event was held to showcase research to both the University and selected school teachers, charities, patient groups and industrialists. At the event, we demonstrated some of the wearable tactile devices that we have produced through the project, and reported on the findings of their evaluation on human participants.
