Haptics and Human-Computer Interaction
Speakers: Stephen Brewster
Topic(s): Human Computer Interaction
Haptics and the use of touch can provide a rich new ways for people to interact and experience devices. I have been working in the area of haptics for a long time and am often frustrated by the limitations of the technology when trying to design interesting user interactions. One reason for this is that there is a mismatch between what these devices can do and human capabilities. In this talk I will talk about haptics in a new way and look at different types of devices that are a much better match to us as humans and show how we might design better user interfaces using them. I will show new interaction possibilities using force and pressure input, thermal feedback and ultrasound haptics.
