The SENSE project is a novel initiative aimed at enhancing sensory exploration of nature through cutting-edge technology. The project involves testing a haptic device that has been integrated with a web application containing textures from nature such as fur, scales, tree barks, and bees.
This haptic device offers a unique and interactive way for school kids to experience and learn about the textures of nature in a hands-on manner. The web application is designed to be user-friendly, allowing children to navigate and explore the different textures with ease.
The project also involves using the think-aloud protocol to gather data and feedback from the children as they use the haptic device and web application. The data collected will be analysed to further refine and improve the SENSE project, making it an even more valuable tool for sensory exploration and education.
The SENSE project has the potential to revolutionize the way children learn about and experience nature, and we are excited to see what the future holds for this innovative initiative.
