Tactile interactions can make movies, games, and other media more engaging, but there's no support for physical feedback in current media types. FeelCraft is a new way to add touch-based feedback to any media type.
We use a library of general tactile effects ("Feel Effects"), customizing each effect to better match each media. For example, a user can download a rain effect and then tune it to match the rain in their game. Our system connects to the popular sandbox game Minecraft, playing feel effects for in-game events.
