Thanks for your interest in the ‘Touch Tools’ workshop at IEEE World Haptics 2021 on Monday, 5th July 2021 (11:00-14:00 EST). If you are planning to attend, please prepare by doing the following in advance of the session: 

  1. Pick some everyday objects which you can bring along to the workshop as part of your personal ‘Box of Sensations’ (you do not have to share your choices with others). Choose 3-5 of the following: Something…. soft, hard, rubbery, noisy, fragile, fabric, caring, atmospheric, transitional, something evocative of the sense of touch.
  2. If you don’t know it already, please sign up to and familiarise yourself with the use of Miro. For an introductory tutorial, click here; additional tech advice can be accessed here

Below you can find links to some of the toolkits we will be introducing on the day – no need to access them in advance, unless you’re keen!
