  • Soft and integrated design can enable wearable haptic devices to augment natural human taction. This paper proposes a novel, soft, haptic finger-worn wearable device based on compliant and adhesive silicone skin and lightweight twisted and coiled polymer (TCP) actuators using ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers to provide lateral skin stretch sensations. Recently, silicone elastomers have been used in wearable sensors and in haptic applications for their high compliance or… CONTINUE READING
