FlipBook Pro

FlipBook Pro is an exploration of haptic feedback. It replicates the feeling of flipping through paper by using force feedback from a small DC motor. Pushing the handle back and forth allows you to control the speed in which the sketch is flipped through on your computer screen.

The exploration began when watching how a blindfolded person interacted with a book. Since there is no content to look at, flipping was the immediate interaction and experience. Therefore flipping was an interesting feedback mechanism to play with.

We see the FlipBook Pro as a tangible investigation of how searching through content and files on your computer might feel.
