  • Publication number: 20070063849
    Abstract: A wearable telecommunication device such as a garment that allows sending the sensation of touch, for example in the form of a hug, over a distance. Embedded in the garment are sensors and actuators, and typically one garment is worn by the sender and another by the recipient. The sensors capture various parameters representative of the touch, including the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the wearer, and the actuators recreate the sensation of that touch, and warmth through heating, vibration, and inflation. A wired or wireless connection permits the data captured by the sensors in the sender garment to be transmitted to the actuators in the recipient garment.

  • Publication number: 20060125786
    Abstract: The present invention includes a mobile device that is capable of storing media and optionally a wireless network connection for streaming live data between the device and the database. The data from the orientation sensor and the position sensor both go directly into the mobile device as input to a controller in the device. The controller controls in part an audio/video output that is modulated based upon the relative position of the user to an object of interest as well as the user's orientation.
