Abstract

Thermal stimulation represents a relatively unexplored and potentially beneficial area of research for interface design. To date no research on thermal interfaces has looked at continuous thermal stimulation in detail. Here we begin to explore the design space offered by continuous thermal stimulation by conducting a controlled experiment that investigates perception of various thermal stimuli relative to a range of starting temperatures. Based on the experimental results, we discuss design implications and possible future work.
