The Shocking History of Haptics
David completed a PHD in media culture and communication, where he began his dedicated work in haptics. In 2018 David published his book; Archaeologies of Touch. The book was inspired by the dissertation research he conducted at NYU. David’s interest in haptics has led him to research the use of haptics going all the way back to the 1700s.
Top 3 Lessons
- Use cases in haptics can be traced all the way back to the 17 s! The dictionary of philosophy and psychology of 1901 describes haptics as “the doctrine of touch.“
- In the 1800s researchers began to push the fact that touch is not just one sense. Questions were raised such as; does pain count as touch? Does tickle count as touch? Does temperature count as touch? Does weight count as touch? Does vibration count as touch?
- In the 1905s, a linguistics system was created that employed 5 different vibrating motors that were positioned on the torso. The creators basically had a 45-character language that they could train subjects to decode. The idea was that this would be a faster way of communicating than Morse code.
Powerful Statement to take away
The biggest challenge is not to think about haptics in terms of what people are
capable of decoding but the associations that they are willing to learn to decode.”
