CrossLab — Sensory Shopping

Investigating the power of senses, shopping and new media

Assignment 3

This assignment features a guest, Maarten Wijntjes, a PhD researcher in the Helmholtz Instituut at the University of Utrecht.  Maarten will be helping us to understand the relationship between touch and sight. He has some interesting experiments to conduct, and you will be the subjects.

Can you see with your fingers?
How does touch work, anyways?
What is tactile visualization?
Are there touch illusions, similar to visual and auditory illusions?

Maarten’s personal website, which contains background, research, analysis and online  experiments demonstrating his work can be found here: –>
