Abstract

Electrovibration has been used extensively with touchscreens and other rigid objects. We propose extending electrovibration to wearables such as wristbands, jewelry and clothing, and present an exploration of the resulting design space and preliminary experimentation with haptic prototypes made of flexible materials and conductive textiles.
