Abstract

To achieve an integrated impression of a product it is important to encompass all five senses. Otherwise, the perception of the product may be misleading and total impression fails. Previous research has focused on visual properties; this study concentrates on haptic properties. Haptics, based on the sense of touch, is active and explorative, since the skin, muscles and joints function together to obtain information. It is the sense of product form, weight, grip span, resistance, the use etc. The interview study aims to map and reflect the level of awareness and knowledge of haptic properties in current product development. Generally, the interviewees were not familiar with this concept but they did work with specific haptic properties.
