Sketching Haptics workshop

Part of the Experience Prototyping course, October 2010


This 5 day workshop will explore the world of haptics and probe various ways that designers can work with interfaces that actively engage with our sense of touch. The workshop will be very hands-on as we will sketch various haptic ideas right from the start. Students will use various prototyping tools, mediums and approaches to gradually refine their sensitivity to the topic.


  • Mandatory readings: Presentations October 21 at 13h00 + written report due October 21 23h59.
  • Technology Review: each student has to pick one of the following topics and report his findings in oral (5-10 mins) and written forms (1-2 A4 pages of text, or wiki page). I can provide resources and documentation to get started. Presentations October 22 at 9h00 + written report due October 22 23h59.
