Abstract

With each technological breakthrough, our visual and auditory modalities are becoming increasingly overloaded with information. In this work, we explore the sense of touch as an alternative channel for communication for multimedia applications. We propose a novel theoretical framework, inspired by natural language, for the design of somatic information delivery systems, and validate this framework in applications of motor learning and accessible movies for individuals who are blind.
