When using social networking, users often upload digital media to capture their experiences, and this includes video or photos of meals, landscapes, gatherings of friends, etc. These events are captured with a camera, recorded by a microphone, or archived using a video camera. Such media provides us with visual, audible, or integrated audio-visual experiences. However, up until now, sharing one's corresponding haptic experiences has not been possible. If this haptic experience can be shared, the sensory feedback will be sufficiently compelling and easy to understand in order for a more complete experience from a first-person perspective.
