Paper accepted at EuroHaptics 2014

It has been a while since I posted anything here (the publications page is up-to-date however). But this week I received the wonderful news that our paper “Simulated Social Touch in a Collaborative Game” was accepted as a full paper at EuroHaptics 2014 in Versaille, France. In the paper we investigate the role of simulated social touch by virtual agents in a collaborative augmented reality game. We found that touch by a virtual agent enhanced participants’ perceptions of the affective qualities of this touching agent.
