Haptic Research

Research and Testing

Here I have documented my experiments in developing research workshops and techniques for uncovering emotive qualities of vibration.


I created devices with embedded vibrating actuators and testing out various types of feedback; written, both scientific and poetic, drawn and sculpted.

Workshop Feedback


Following on from my early experiments I developed my vibration device, adding more power and more motors to allow a finer tuning of the vibration patterns.


I also created more robust objects, using a solid MDF box and a cantilevered steel lid to make these experiments suitable for the public.
