Abstract

This paper introduces Shape2Vibe, a co-design tool for collaboratively designing vibrotactile feedback with people with deafblindness. We outline how a first version of Shape2Vibe was developed and tested. We explain to what extent the tool supports communication during the design process and how it can be used to design meaningful vibrotactile feedback for any given situation. The results from a co-design evaluation study indicate that Shape2Vibe sufficiently supports communication in a co-design session to enable co-design between a designer and people with deafblindness.
