...and we're back in the room! After a few weeks of skeleton-shaking, bone-jellifying haptic exploration, I'm finally ready to share with you some of my discoveries around how haptics can enhance the design and delivery of creative digital storytelling. Of all of the discoveries I had made throughout my residency at Open Source, the thing that has excited me the most is the impact that separating haptics FROM audio can have on our approach to designing and configuring digital storytelling experiences.

Just like the last video - this is a fairly comprehensive vlog, so do feel free to jump through the chapters highlighted in the video play bar to find the tasty morsels you might be looking for!

So keep your eyes peeled for updates on this front! Or if you'd like our digital machines to keep you updated - then please do consider subscribing to my new Youtube channel and slam that there notification button to find out when the next update is posted to my channel!
