Along with the development of information technology and tactile technology, it has become possible to share human haptic experiences via the Internet. In this research, we propose HaptI/O a technology that allows easy sharing and communication of haptic experiences. HaptI/O devices are physical network nodes that can perform as gateways to both input or output the haptic information from a source such as the human body or a tangible object. HaptI/O proposed in this research focuses on the (1) ease of sharing haptic information with a focus on usability (2) share Haptic information among multiple users (3) usage of the HaptI/O as a mobile device. As a result of user testing of the implemented HaptI/O, it was confirmed that user’s information perception in remote communication was improved.
