Shafiq ur Réhman, J. Sun, Li Liu and Haibo Li, Turn your mobile into the football: rendering live football game by vibration, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, vol. 10(6), 2008.
Vibration offers many potential benefits for the use of mobile phones. In this paper, we propose a new method of rendering live football game on mobile phones using vibration. A mobile phone is “synchronized” with the ball in the real field. By holding the phone, users are able to experience dynamic movements of the ball, to know attacking directions and which team is leading the attack. The usability test of our system shows that vibrotactile display is suitable for rendering live football information on mobile phones by adopting designed coding schemes with a right training process.
