Haptic Harmony Research                 

Study in Progress

Do physical vibrations produce consonance and dissonance effects, as in music?
In on-going research, we’ve shown that consonant combinations of sub-audible haptic vibrations are preferred over dissonant combinations.

                                                              

Research on “The Vibe”                     

Study in Progress

What do people mean by “the vibe”? Can human-centered design methods help produce better vibes? 
We have assembled rigorous qualitative data about “designing better vibes” from professional designers, musicians, educators, marketers, etc.

Musical Mind Reading                        

Study in Progress

To what extent does aesthetic resonance with music correlate with neural resonance? 
By collecting high-density EEG data from over 25 participants while listening to music, we’re building convolutional neural networks to predict musical experiences.

                                                              

Brain Vibes                                          

Cross-modal Frequency Research

Can the translation of brainwaves into physical vibrations help support understanding?Brainwaves are mysterious and difficult to interpret. Building on the success of turning EEG data into sound and music, we’ve translated EEG into a head-to-head vibration experience.
