in Haptics

Haptics: Day 2

This week in class, we learned about Motor Arrays. Based off of this knowledge, we made a Haptic Matrix.


A wearable haptic matrix using multiple mini vibration motors that forms radio pattern to produce vibrating wave sensation on wrist.  


Motor Sketch:

Material Used:

  • Arduino Uno
  • 9 mini vibration motors
  • Leather as enclosure


  • The motor in the center produced the strongest vibration whereas the motors in the outer circles felt weak.
  • We couldn’t really experience the vibration like a wave. It was more like all the motors vibrating at the same time.
