Un Control

Touch is one of our most important senses, but if you really think about it touch is quite binary. Before you touch something, you can only anticipate, but you don't feel anything beforehand. With this project we created a wearable that brings a new dimension to touch. When the two probes detect if you are approaching something, a flywheel on top starts spinning fast and the direction of your hand is altered. It creates a strange sort of foreplay for your senses. This is a collaboration with Bart van Dommelen, Hanneke Klaver and Jelle Reith
