Mood by Touch
The mood by touch project began with my interest in VR, multi-modality and affective engineering. I wanted to try and create an experience that instills emotion with stimuli in three different modalities – visual, haptic and auditive. The project was conducted in Unity by creating one base-world in four different variations inspired by Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions (1). To make sure that what I actually created was in line with what others would feel I went ahead and did some academic research on how you could instill anger, fear, sadness and hope with visual, auditive and haptic stimuli.
