TACTILU

"Just get in touch"

TACTILU is a project that uses a combination of Bluetooth, your smartphone, and a unique sensor and actuator system to remotely transmit touch between two people.

Developed for the ITAKA Foundation Centre for Missing People by the design group panGenerator and the Warsaw Cheil office, the bracelet is a research prototype created using a 3d printed enclosure, an Arduino pro mini, and a combination of 5 nitinol springs and quantum tunneling composite technology (QTC) to control the sensor and actuator touch system between the two people.
