            Abstract

            InTouch Wearables is a set of wearables that consist of dresses and shoulder pieces that allow mother and child to share remote touches through garments with ambient feedback. This was created to explore how remote touches can convey emotion and help people stay connected between remote locations. This project was created based on the lead artist’s personal experience with her child. In InTouch Wearables , a parent can increase the vividness of her conversation with a child through contextualised touch, and the loved ones may enhance the affective tone of their communication using remote touch technology. All the electronic components of the garment for sensing human touches and actuating colour-changing garment are embedded on the main fabrics.
