Skype technology is often used with a webcam and it is known that this augments communication. The new trend is the multisensory internet and in view of that Microsoft wants to investigate the strength of touch as a sensory augmentation in Skype. To that end a university team is asked to investigate E-Sense,a touchscreen developed by Senseg with which tactile sensations can be transferred using the Coulomb effect. Through small electric fields the users’ touch sense is activated. The research is performed on an extended Windows-8 based tablet. Case: Personal contact of sales representatives are appreciated by customers. For very specialist products like fabrics it is difficult to maintain these contacts in a face-to-face fashion. Skype calls provide fast and visual contact; however, for the communication of fabrics the touch sense is required. The university development team decides to address this as a case study for their “touch”screen. Textures of the fabrics are displayed while at the same time the touch sensation is generated using the Senseg screen. In this manner the augmentation is investigated. In order to experiment with the system, a library of 50 fabrics is used with a range of different textures. The sensation of each of the textures is measured with a number of test persons and the resulting pattern is used for the Senseg technology. The library of fabrics consists of an image and the tactile pattern. A prototype Skype plug-in is made that displays the image and transfers the tactile pattern to the customer while the sales representative is “in view” and talking.
