TELE Touch

Experiments, 2020

Am missing hugs right now

So got really interested how technology could solve issues around our lack of touch and physical sensation with each other right now, especially with loved ones who are far away/in hospital etc

 

This experiment, called Tele Touch,  involved sending and receiving touch over Lorawan, through a simple device that involves a pressure sensor and a vibration motor.

The more you squeeze, the more intense the sensation that is felt at the other end, and when you both squeeze together, something magic happens.

Becuase feeling together is awesome.
