Digital Touch Emoticons: Development, Effectiveness and Usability

Digital Touch Emoticons will bring together experts on touch from social science, neuroscience and computer science with the aim to understand how affective touch can be digitally-mediated to enhance social communication and positive social feedback. The project will use methods from these three disciplines to generate a prototype design and explore how a device for digital touch communication could be best commercialized in the near future.
