Towards Consistent Haptic Coupling with HaptiStrap: Doing Better than ``Tight yet Comfortable''

How firmly a haptic device, such as a smartwatch, is coupled to the body can change how its haptic effects are perceived. However, hapticians often rely on vague subjective coupling characteristics such as ``strapped snugly'' or ``tight yet …

3D printed Coupling Indicator for Wearable Haptics

This project explores how simple 3D printed tensioners can be used to provide visual coupling feedback when putting on wearable haptic systems.
