W4 - What’s Shakin’? - Auditory Haptic Interaction

There are a variety of audio applications that can benefit from the coordinated display of haptic information, whether it is your finger or your whole body that is being shaken. The workshop participants will discuss the relatively untapped potentials for including vibro-sensory stimulation in user interfaces and in multimedia displays. The term haptic is used broadly here to include any kinaesthetic or tactile stimulation of skin or somatic senses, such as that provided by devices you hold in your hand or by vibrating seats on which you are positioned. Emphasis will be placed upon the results of research designed to examine experimentally the effects of audio-haptic interaction, especially for applications in which the simulation of structural vibration can provide a more natural experience of reproduced acoustic events.
