Biometric Perception Interface

Abstract : Soft robotics are primarily composed of soft materials with low moduli which are close to that of biological materials [1]. This unique feature leads to its potential of being utilized on human body as wearable devices that can directly stay and interact with the user’s skin, further expanding the application scenario of robot as a haptic agent of interpersonal communication. With the possibility of conveying intimate messages while maintaining a desired physical distance, a skin-contact based remote communication can create a new form of intimate relationship for people. We present Biometric Perception Interface, a wearable perception extension interface that measures and converts pulse into haptic actuation, and allows users to record and playback pulse data from and to their bodies. We demonstrate three inter-connected components of Biometric Perception Interface: Memorizer, Choker, and Antenna. Additionally, Biometric Perception Interface challenges the common practices of visual memory and quantified abstraction of biological phenomena, and proposes an alternative interpersonal intimate communication mediated by soft-robotics.
