「Haptic TV」in ICC

dot by dot was invited to take part in the “OPEN SPACE 2018: in transition” exhibition, which opened at the NTT InterCommunication Center (ICC) on June 2, 2018.

For the exhibition, we showcased the HAPTIC TV—one of our recent installations that adds HAPTIC data to content streaming to create a new television viewing experience. Through vibrating sofas, cushions and remote controls, visitors can enjoy 6 channels (hanabi, anime, karate, dance, documentary and nature) with haptic sensation.

Organized by ICC, the show runs through March 2019 and aims to introduce media art and other forms of artistic expression born out of today’s media environments to a broader audience.
