@conference {425, title = {Integration of Touch Pressure and Position Sensing with Speaker Diaphragms (Colocating Loudspeakers and Touch Interaction)}, booktitle = {Audio Engineering Society}, year = {2012}, publisher = {AES}, organization = {AES}, address = {San Francisco}, abstract = {Speaker cones and other driver diaphragms are usually too fragile to be good sites for touch interaction. This can be solved by employing new, lightweight piezoresistive e-textiles with flat, rectangular, stiff surfaces used in full-range drivers from HiWave. Good low-frequency performance of piezoresistive fabric has an advantage over piezoelectric sensing for this situation. Applications of these integrated sensor/actuators include haptic feedback user interfaces and responsive electronic percussion instruments.}, author = {Freed, Adrian} }
