Abstract

Touch is the most intimate and inherently private human sense and provides the potential for discrete, low social weight human computer interaction. This paper presents initial research findings on issues of integrating a vibrotatcitle display and support electronics into a standard clothing insert, the shoulder pad. Research on construction methods is presented along with a discussion of the merits and drawbacks of each technique. User study data for response to tactile display stimuli, collected with a varying number of stimulators, is then presented with initial conclusions as to the type and format of data suitable for shoulder based tactile arrays.
