Exploring the potential of telehaptic communication between multiple users, Human Stitches is a pair of wireless bodysuits outfitted with 120 haptic zones. Each zone contains a sensor for input and an actuator for feedback.
The suits are designed to mirror each other (a touch on one suit triggers and actuator in the same location on the other) or they can be controlled remotely via a mobile device.
The project is a wonderful research tool to examine various use cases for haptic communication. More detailed information can be found in this paper on Telehaptic Awareness.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
