Using social networks in our daily life, users sometimes upload their experience; for example, foods, magnificent views, a gathering scene with friends etc. These events are taken by a camera, recorded by a microphone, or archived by a video camera. These data provide us with visual, sound or integrated audiovisual experiences through the Internet. However, up until now, the sharing of corresponding haptic experiences has not been possible. If this haptic experience can be shared, this sensory feedback will be compelling enough and is easy to understand what people are experiencing by a first-person perspective.
