Abstract:Gentle stroking touches are considered highly relevant in social interactions. When loved ones are apart they cannot express or receive these touches. In 2021 C.Stork developed a haptic sleeve to mediate such affective touches during a video or phone call. This haptic display was limited to straight strokes. In this article the development of an algorithm will be discussed that simplifies user input shapes to straight lines. This adds more expressiveness to the sleeve by allowing user drawn shapes to be simulated. The sleeve has been adjusted during this project based on suggestions from F. Tang et al. , these adjustments will also be discussed
