Maximilian Schrapel is a researcher in the Human-Computer Interaction Group at the University of Hanover. His field of interests are artificial intelligence and pattern recognition with the aim to create new interaction techniques between humans and computers.
Before he started studying as communications engineer in Hanover he completed his apprenticeshipment as an electrician for systems and supplies in a company for satellite receiver technology. During his master studies at the University of Hanover he focused on his current research topics. After he graduated he joined the Human-Computer Interaction Group.
Wrist Compression Feedback by Pneumatic Actuation
CHI '15 Extended Abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems on - CHI EA '15
Most common forms of haptic feedback use vibration, which immediately captures the user's attention, yet is limited in the range of strengths it can achieve. Vibration feedback over extended periods also tends to be annoying. We present compression feedback, a form of haptic feedback that scales from very subtle to very strong and is able to provide sustained stimuli and pressure patterns. The demonstration may serve as an inspiration for further work in this area, applying compression feedback to generate subtle, intimate, as well as intense feedback.
