Description: Next-gen. smart haptic headphone with a haptic-based semantic system (dataset of haptic emojis). It reinvents digital interaction by incorporating a new layer, the tangible interface, to provide affective haptic stimulations and multi-sensory audio experience to restore tangible stimuli in remote communication. Users can not only hear but also “tangibly” feel the music or conversations. When mapped with audio, it offers multi-sensory music or gaming experience; or in a call, the system instantly translates the content into”correct” haptic representations. The touch panel also enables users to send gestures, touches and other stimuli directly.
