eNTERFACE’13 Touching Virtual Agents Tech Demo

I’ve been in Lisbon for the past two weeks working on our Touching Virtual Agents project as part of the eNTERFACE’13 workshop. Despite having been ill for a few days we’ve made some good progress! Here’s a video of our first tech demo showing how a virtual agent can touch a user through an augmented reality app and vibrotactile sleeve. In the next two weeks we’ll be extending this setup and run experiments on the role of touch in communication with virtual agents.
