“inTouch” is a medium that enables users, who are separated from each other by distance, to communicate through touch. Specifically, force-feedback technology is employed to makes the users feel as if they are operating a shared physical object.
This research project embodies the concept of expanding targets of info-communication research from sound, text, and computer graphics to “tangible information,” and has inspired many researchers, designers, and businesspersons since it was unveiled in 1997.
