In this paper we present the concept and initial design stages of the TaSST (Tactile Sleeve for Social Touch).
The TaSST consists of a soft pressure-sensitive input layer, and an output layer containing vibration motors. A touch to ones own sleeve is felt as a vibration on the sleeve of another person. The idea behind the TaSST is to enable two people to communicate different types of touch at a distance. We will outline the design process of the TaSST, describe some initial results from a user study, and discuss possible applications of the TaSST.
