Abstract

The paper focuses on a cyberspace communication system iFeel-IM!. Driven by the motivation to enhance social interactivity and emotionally immersive experience of real-time messaging, we proposed the idea of reinforcing (intensifying) own feelings and reproducing (simulating) the emotions felt by the partner through specially designed system iFeel-IM!. Users can not only exchange messages but also emotionally and physically feel the presence of the communication partner (e.g., family member, friend, or beloved person). The paper will also describe a novel portable affective haptic system iTouch-IM!. The motivation behind the research is to provide the emotional immersive communication regardless the location. This system has a potential to bring a new level of immersion for mobile on-line communication.
