Abstract
Touch can convey emotions on a very direct level. We propose feelabuzz, a system implementing a remote touch connection using standard mobile phone hardware. Accelerometer data is mapped to vibration strength on two smartphones connected via the Internet. This is done using direct mapping techniques, without any abstraction of the acceleration signal. By this, feelabuzz can be used for implicit context communication, i.e. the background monitoring of the natural movements of the users themselves or their environments, as well as for direct communication, i.e. voluntary and symbolic signalling through this new channel. We describe the system and its implementation, discuss its possible implications and verify the system's ability to recognizably transmit different actions in a preliminary user study.
