At the World Haptics J.J Zarate, N. Besse, O. Gudozhnik, A. Ruch, H. Shea, demonstrated the “Portable pin array with 192 fast latching taxels”. Also an oral presentation was given about the portable pins. Many people tried out the demonstrator. A lighter version of the proto1, which was used at the first prototypes was presented at the World Haptics.
Nadine Besse, Herbert Shea, Juan Zarate, Samuel Rosset, Luca Brayda presented the “4×4 SMP demo” at the Haptics Symposium 2016 conference held from April 8th till 11th 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition to that also a publication was successful at the Symposium.
Impressions from the Symposium
We organized the first Workshop on Multisensory Interaction and Assistive Technology. This was co-organized with scientists in the field of neuroscience, engineering and human-machine interfaces. Within the workshop, the following talk was given: Can refreshable tactile displays be a complementary tool in rehabilitation setups for visually impaired people (by Luca Brayda)?
