About Kajimoto Laboratory

Kajimoto lab was established in April 2007. The main research topic is human interface,
especially tactile or multimodal interface.
Our keyword is "interface for fun," or "tactile for fun," because we strongly believe
that major potential application field for tactile interface is entertainment.

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.
