The goal of this project is to allow anyone to find the right vibration that feels right in its emotional connotations for personal or utilitarian purposes. In particular, we are curious about:

1) Which emotional dimensions are viable to be represented and manipulated through our vibrations?

2) Which vibration characteristics can be used to make a vibration have more or less of a particular emotion?

3) Can an interface be built that facilatates all of the above eg. sliders to fine-tune/stylize a vibration to be more "lively"
