E-Tech Talks (2): Good Contacts with Humans
Date/Time: Thursday, December 6th, 1:00pm - 1:15pm
Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: RFIDesk is an interactive surface that enables both multi-touch and rich-ID stackable tangible interactions. It uses ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) for recognizing the rich-ID stacking of tangible blocks and integrates indium tin oxide (ITO) for capacitive multi-touch detection while preserving the interface transparency.

E-Tech Talks (2): Good Contacts with Humans
Date/Time: Thursday, December 6th, 1:15pm - 1:30pm
Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: We developed a device presents the haptic sensation of the fingertip to the forearm rather than to the fingertip for objects in virtual reality environment. The device adopts a five-bar linkage mechanism and Peltier elements, presents the strength, direction of a force, vibration and the thermal sensation to the forearm.

Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: "Relaxushion" is cushion shaped device which enables us to control breath unconsciously by overwriting somatic sensation of our breathing. By embracing this device, we get a cushion’s motion confused with our breathing motion. This illusion strongly modifies our breathing rhythms and helps us to become relaxed state.

Summary: TactGAN helps us to design vibrotactile feedbacks rapidly. With this system, we can generate vibrotactile stimuli from images and user-defined attribute values such as material kinds or tactile words. We can design vibrotactile feedback on the touchscreen while touching and comparing the generated stimuli.

E-Tech Talks (2): Good Contacts with Humans
Date/Time: Thursday, December 6th, 2:00pm - 2:15pm
Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: We propose a very simple rapid prototyping method of haptic interfaces for touch devices. The sheet-like interface for a capacitive touch screen is composed of magnetic rubber sheets and conductive materials. Moreover, using a magnetizing toolkit, the haptic feedback can be changed within seconds.
