Human Touch in Digital Experiences

January/February 2016

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications magazine cover

This issue showcases a selection of feature articles that all have in common a strong emphasis on using computing environments to improve the human experience. A key element in these works is adding touch to visual representations, which has long been established as necessary for improving human-computer interaction. Rather than focusing only on in-depth issues of haptic displays, the articles in this issue provide an interesting crosscut of different embodiments and applications for improving, mimicking, facilitating, or even reducing the need for human touch in digital experiences.
