A multisensory approaach

Aimed at expanding expressive possibilities to describe artworks to visually impaired or blind visitors, our solution enables users to interact with a 3D replica of the artpiece through a multisensory approach. TouchKEY+ devices deliver tactile sensations like shapes, vibrations, and thermal sensations, which are applied to fingertips and are associated with selected elements of the artwork.
Tactile sensations are integrated with custom audio guides providing descriptive texts, which can be activated according to user’s exploration path.

A product for virtual touch experiences 

TouchKEY+ includes a sensor similar to mouses that enables planar interactive fruition of 2D or 3D content. Haptic stimuli are applied dynamically based on the user’s inputs. Recently, we have been using this device for installations in museums and art centers to deliver a digital, dynamic and augmented version of plasters.
