Tactile signals are a common language in nature. Humans and animals interact tactilely across species. In addition, virus infection occurs through macromolecular-mediated tactile interactions between sugar chains on the virus's surface and cells. Artificial intelligence and . Information technology has been centered on symbol manipulation, and sensibility and tactile information processing is still a challenge. The symbol is a medium of logic, and tactile language is a medium of sensitivity. With the rapid development of IoT, such as XaaS, people worry that artificial intelligence and science and technology will overtake humans because new technologies do not have the sensibility to communicate with us. If people can have sensibility communications with new technologies via tactile sense, likewise communicating with a cat or dog, new technologies will be merged into society. In this sense, new technologies expand the abilities of human and nature. In nature, for example, infectious diseases will continue to threaten humankind; therefore, it would be of great value to communicate with them via the tactile sense to respect and sustain each existence. Is it not time then, that we reconsider the tactile sense?
This Special Issue's scope is new thoughts and attempts that are not bound by the aesthetics and philosophy of conventional tactile sensations; scientific theory and practice that open up new science and engineering insights; inclusive design; art/design of tactile sense; etc. In particular, the theme is the tactile sensation that changes with time. However, conventional tactile discourse and science and engineering did not have the concept of time. Only tactile sensations that do not change over time, such as "hard" and "soft", have been dealt with. This Special Issue proposes Tactileology, a new cross-disciplinary research field that considers time-evolving tactile sensations. This Special Issue will be a turning point for tactile dissertation and science and engineering. Based on this Special Issue, new sensitivity and tactile informatics will be born.
