NeVIS

NeVIS is a local network system that establishes communication between individual performers, as well as between laptop and performers. Specifically, this is achieved by making use of vibrotactile feedback as a signaling tool within an improvisational setting. A cueing system is imposed over the improvisation and is transmitted directly to the skin of the performers via tiny vibrations. Performers may make use of simple vibrotactile signals to enhance traditional visual cues that are often employed within performance.
