Touch Media

This project aimed to create a new way of communication using and increasing our sense of touch by creating  a wearable tool, which has an open use, but in this research will focus to give a critical answer to our major visual based society and the concept that we never touched anything.

The main areas where this new form of communication can be used are:

1. helping vision disabled people, which could then could have another option to communicate other than the Braille language, since it is a form of communication that is not open for an instant answer;

2. Movement disabled people, or long distant relation users which want to experience another type of connection that the visual devices cannot create; and

3. People who want to experience and receive other types of information that couldn‘t been send by visual communication devices.

This project is the result of six months of theoretical research and three months of complete dedication at the research line Advanced Interaction, as part of the Master of Advanced Architecture program at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.

It had been used a diversity of tools and softwares, such as: Arduino, Fritzing, Eagle CAD, Rhino 3D, Slic3r, electronics, soldering, 3D printing, CNC Router, etc.

It took part at a group exhibition “Interactive Experiences” at July and August, 2015 at Studio P52, Barcelona (http://studiop52.com/).

All the files of the Arduino codes, Fritzing, Eagle, Rhino, etc. are available for download at GitHub: https://github.com/orion-campos/Touch_Media
