Wireless Vibrotactile Tokens for Audio-Haptic Interaction with Touchscreen Interfaces

Berdahl, Edgar and Holmes, Danny and Sheffield, Eric

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

New interfaces for vibrotactile interaction with touchscreens are realized. An electromagnetic design for wireless actuation of 3D-printed conductive tokens is analyzed. Example music interactions are implemented using physical modeling paradigms, each investigated within the context of a particular token that suggests a different interaction metaphor.
