What kind of experience we can provide through haptics?


Group Overview

What is social-haptics?

In #social-haptics, we aim to explore technologies that will allow us to communicate through experiences that utilize touch and design, which are the very technologies that will help lead to the future of non-verbal communication. We aim to create technologies that will help build relationships among a diverse group of people and consequently, create new way of social interactions.
