IEEE Spectrum Online has a fascinating article called "Jacket Lets You Feel the Movies" by Willie Jones that reports on the work of Philips Research senior scientist Paul Lemmens. This research uses a motor-studded haptics jacket to study the effect of touch and vibration on movie viewers' emotional responses. This project will be featured at the 2009 World Haptics Conference in Salt Lake City.
