Imagine touching at a distance… What would it feel like? What would it mean? Who and what could touch or be touched? Based on three years of innovative social research, InTouch will help you immerse yourself in the world of digital touch, from distance communication to using digital devices to manage complex emotions. Join us for an interactive talk of ‘Connecting, Communicating, Feeling through Digital Touch’, and visit our stand to try out emerging touch technologies and envisage their future.
