Abstract

We present a novel method of interaction for users to preview an audio track haptically. The preview enables users to "feel" the track they want to select, thus saving them from having to look at the screen or listen to the track before actually playing it. Our results show that users enjoyed the combination of audio and haptic feedback and that users would very much like to see this type of sensory collaboration being incorporated into their own mobile device.
