Kajimoto Laboratory

Kajimoto lab was established in April 2007. The main research topic is human interface, especially tactile or multimodal interface.
As scientists, we are seeking why and how we feel the world as is,
As engineers, we are devising in how to hack human function,
and as designers, we are concerting to enrich human culture by interface design.

  • NEW!Sense-Roid will be presented at Laval Virtual2011 ( 2011.4.4-10 ).
    Abstract—What type of emotions could be obtained if you were able to hug yourself? When we hug someone, we feel a sense of ease coming from emotions such as belief, security and love. However, it is not possible to hug oneself, who is the closest person. To experience this situation, we proposed a tactile device called the Sense-Roid. The system is composed of a lay figure with tactile sensors to detect the user's caressing motion, and a tactile jacket with vibrators and artificial muscles to reflect the caressing motion to the user. As a result, users caress themselves through our Sense-Roid. We believe that this self-caressing experience will enlighten people about the value of caressing.
