New mini-ET in the making December 15, 2014Posted by Tom Froese in Technical.
Adam Spiers is currently developing a mini version of the Enactive Torch. In addition to the smaller design, this ET features a new output modality in addition to vibration: skin stretching. A pilot study comparing these two modalities is currently being planned.
In the above photo the new skin-stretch output can be seen below the user’s thumb.
The existing version of the Enactive Torch will continue to be available from Creative Robotics. Note that only the full-sized version has the complete data recording and transfer capabilities.
