Haptics Demo in Multidisciplinary Research Week

2nd February 2011

Discussing the research with attendees
Multidisciplinary Research Week was a programme of activities aimed at showcasing different aspects of multidisciplinary work at the University of Southampton.

As a part of the week, we gave a demonstration of our haptic devices to attendees during a drop in session, where visitors could try out the devices and find out more about the research. We were also able to highlight the benefits that were obtained through a multidisciplinary approach to the research. One of the attendees commented:
"The varied applications are really interesting. I liked hearing how the technology could be used in the home, with rehabilitation possible using developed console games."
During the event, we were interviewed by BBC Radio Solent, and gave the reporter a demonstration of our devices. The interview aired during the Alex Dyke show, between 9:30-13:00 on 02 February 2011. A clip of the radio interview can be downloaded here (copyright BBC, 2011).
