The research and design project InTouch hopes to make that moment of connection bring us closer together. Using haptic technology, the InTouch explored new ways to allow us all to reach out and touch those who mean the most to us at that very moment in time when we need each other the most.
Initially aimed to enable families separated by long distance to engage through storytelling at bedtime, our explorations have led us deeper, to the bigger question: What is ‘real’ connection, and more importantly how can we get back what we all need, to feel next to those people we love?
