Affective Haptic Furniture is a directional vibration pattern system which generates different type of basic emotions (e.g. happy, calming, etc). We implemented it onto a chair-like cushion to create more accessibility for people to regulate their emotions during daily cognitive tasks. We embedded 8 vibro-transducers on upper and lower back, bottom and leg area of the chair to allow seated users experience the vibration across the body.
