Abstract

In the paper we are proposing a conceptually novel approach to reinforcing (intensifying) own feelings and reproducing (simulating) the emotions felt by the partner during online communication through specially designed system, iFeel-IM!. The core component, Affect Analysis Model, automatically sense nine emotions from text. The detected emotion is stimulated by innovative haptic devices (HaptiHeart, HaptiHug, HaptiTickler, HaptiCooler, and HaptiWarmer) integrated into iFeel-IM! The implemented system can considerably enhance emotionally immersive experience of real-time messaging.
