Information media that appeal to our body experiences get emerging thanks to the development of wearable haptic devices. Our research project entitled “Embodied Media” aims to develop a haptic feedback module that can provide embodied experiences both in real world and Telexsistence environment. This information session will provide an overview of our research framework, and call for participating in the “Embodied Media consortium” where we employ our research outcomes in order to facilitate fruitful collaborations between industry and academia.

This program is held in Japanese and we regret there is no translation service into other languages.
