Communication with others occurs through a multitude of signals, such as speech, facial expressions, and body postures. Understudied in this regard is the way we use our sense of touch in social communication. In this paper we present the TaSST (Tactile Sleeve for Social Touch), a hap- tic communication device that enables two people to communicate through touch at a distance.
