Park, Young-Woo, Hwang, Sungjae and Nam, Tek-Jin (2011): Poke: emotional touch delivery through an inflatable surface over interpersonal mobile communications. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 61-62. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2046396.2046423

In this paper we present Poke -- a soft and human-like remote touch technique through an inflatable surface. We aimed to design it for delivering more emotional and pleasant touches over interpersonal mobile communications. Poke enables to touch human's skin with an inflatable surface according to the other user's finger pressures and hand gestures during a phone call. It delivers different kinds of pokes and other affective touches with its inflating patterns (strengths and repetitions) and vibrations from the top of the inflatable surface. The paper also suggests affective touches such as weak/hard poke, poke and then shake, poke back and pat which can be exchanged during typical phone calls.

Park, Young-Woo, Lim, Chang-Young and Nam, Tek-Jin (2010): CheekTouch: an affective interaction technique while speaking on the mobile phone. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 3241-3246. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1753846.1753965

We present a new affective interaction technique, called CheekTouch, by combining tactile feedback, delivered through the cheek, and multi-finger input, while speaking on the mobile phone. We designed a prototype by using a multi-touch mobile device and a 4x3 vibrotactile display device. We identified six affective touch behaviors (pinching, stroking, patting, slapping, kissing and tickling) that can be exchanged through one another's cheeks while speaking on the phone. We mapped the affective touch behaviors on tactile feedback expressions of the vibrotactile display. Results of a preliminary user study suggest that our technique is positively evaluated by the participants and applicable to intimate and emotional communication.
