Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention, with reference to FIGS. 1-4, will be described in detail.

Summary of the present embodiment]
Outline of the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. Figure 2 is a diagram showing an outline of an information processing apparatus 1 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 2, the information processing apparatus 1 receives a message from an external communication device (communication device) 1a. For example, the information processing apparatus 1 and the communication device 1a is smartphone (smartphone).

Note that the message to be received is of any type is not particularly limited, it may be a message of text only, may be a message image alone, or a combination thereof. In addition to this, such as voice message may be a message of the form other than the above. Also, aspects of the transmission and reception of messages is not particularly limited, for example, to messages sent as an e-mail may be performed in a mode of the information processing apparatus 1 receives the information processing apparatus a message that has been uploaded to the server 1 there may be an aspect that you want to download. Then, in the latter case, other messages outside of the communication device 1a is uploaded, the information processing apparatus 1 or downloaded to fit for the other device has uploaded messages, these multiple messages in time series real time (time in line format) may be displayed.

In Figure 2, "Mr. A" is, by operating the phone (external communication device 1a), a message including the image P illustrates the situation that is sending the phone (information processing apparatus 1) of the "B" ing.

The information processing apparatus 1 receives the message, it is determined whether the specific information in the message (predetermined information) is included. The specific information, for example, an image that is set in advance, a text (keyword) or the like which is set in advance. Here, if it is determined that contains specific information, the information processing apparatus 1 identifies the predetermined sensory stimulus in accordance with identification information included in the message.

Next, the information processing apparatus 1 generates the identified experience stimulated to an external device. In the present embodiment, the external device, an example is a wrist watch-type terminal (wearable device) 10 as shown in FIG. The external device is a headphone type, eyeglasses, belt type, ring type, best type, jacket type, slacks type and a hat-type or the like, may be a communication terminal can be attached to the body.

Wristwatch-type terminal 10, an instruction from the information processing apparatus 1, received via the wireless communication or the like, to generate a sensible stimuli according the instruction. Note that other communication of the wristwatch-type terminal 10 and the information processing apparatus 1 is the short-range wireless communication such as Bluetooth (registered trademark) is used, long-range wireless communication may be used such as a wireless LAN. Incidentally, the communication is not limited to wireless communication.

In the example of FIG. 2, the specific information is the image P ( "Giyu ~"). The information processing apparatus 1, if it contains images P in the message received from the communication device 1a, identifies a predetermined haptic stimulus corresponding to the image P. Then, the information processing apparatus 1 to generate a specified sensible stimuli, controls the wristwatch type terminal 10. In this example, as an indication of image P ( "Giyu ~"), together with tightening the wrist of the user wearing the wristwatch type terminal 10, (vibrates put away the "Giyu ~") experience stimulation for vibrating the cause.

In the illustrated example, in addition to the image P ( "Giyu ~"), it is possible to transmit images of various fixed as a message. Each image shown is an image showing the contents of the sensible stimulation text, in each of these images, the sensible stimulation in accordance with the contents of each image is associated with. For example, the image (Guggu) is tightened twice stronger bodily sensation stimulus is associated. Thus, a message including the image when the information processing apparatus 1 has been received, the user wristwatch-type terminal 10 is wearing the wristwatch type terminal 10, gives twice strongly tightened experience irritation.

According to the above configuration, the information processing apparatus 1, when a specific information included in the received message, the predetermined sensory stimulus corresponding to a particular information, is generated in an external device. Therefore, by sensing the sensible stimulus sensible stimulation generation unit is generated to the user, can recognize the specific information included in the received message to the user. For example, there is a failure in the eye, even if the message is displayed, the user can not confirm it, it is possible to notify a specific information included in the received message.

[Configuration of the information processing apparatus 1]
It will now be described with reference to FIG. 1 configuration of the information processing apparatus 1. Figure 1 is a block diagram showing a main configuration of the information processing apparatus 1 and the wristwatch-type terminal 10. The information processing apparatus 1 may be any device capable of receiving messages, other smartphones described above, the mobile phone may be a portable game machine and wearable communication devices. The information processing apparatus 1 includes a first communication unit 2, the control unit 3, and a touch panel 4, the storage unit 5 and the second communication unit 7.

The first communication unit 2 is for the information processing apparatus 1 to communicate through the external device, a communications network. In the present embodiment, first communication unit 2 receives a message from the communication device 1a, and sends the message to the data receiving unit 31 of the control unit 3.

Control unit 3 is for controls all the units of the information processing apparatus 1. Control unit 3 includes a data receiving unit 31, bodily sensation stimulating specific portions 33 and sensible stimuli instruction unit 34.

Data receiving unit 31 transmits the message received from the first communication unit 2 to the sensible stimulus specifying part 33. Further, the data receiving unit 31 displays the received message on the display unit 41.

Experience stimulation particular unit 33 judges whether contains specific information in the message received. Then, sensible stimulus specifying unit 33, if a particular information included in the received message, to specify a given sensory stimulus in accordance with the specific information. In particular, experience stimulation particular unit 33 refers to the sensible stimuli table 51 stored in the storage unit 5, determines if there is any specific information in the received message.

Here, prior to description of the experience irritation table 51, an outline of sensible stimulation generation unit 15 that the wristwatch type terminal 10 is provided. Sensible stimulus generator 15 includes a constriction 15a and a vibration unit 15b. Vibrating section 15b is for generating a sensible stimulation of the vibration, constriction 15a is for generating sensible stimulation of contractions (compression by). That is, in the present embodiment, an example using two types of sensory stimuli perceived stimulation (contraction and vibration). For more information about the constriction 15a and the vibration unit 15b will be described later.

For sensible stimuli table 51 will be described with reference to FIG. As shown in FIG. 3, the sensible stimuli table 51, and a sensible stimulus is perceived stimulation generation unit 15 of the specific information and wristwatch-type terminal 10 to generate it is stored with correspondence.

Specific information may be one that can be received as a message, for example, an image may be identified information such as text. The experience stimulation table 51 of FIG. 3, (and "I did it ~!", "Reconciliation"), two kinds of images are included. These images are prepared in advance as possible sent as messages alone or in combination with text.

In other words, the user of the external communication device 1a from the previously prepared image, and select the desired image, along with its image alone or the text may be sent as a message to the information processing apparatus 1. Then, the information processing apparatus 1 includes an image included in the received message is the case of the specific information registered in the sensible stimuli table 51, the sensible stimulus generator 15 a sensible stimuli associated with that particular information generate.

Further, the sensible stimulation table 51 in FIG. 3 (specifically, "sad") specific text contains. Thus, as long as it can be sent as a message, it is possible to identify the information any information. For example, it may be identification information of the audio or the like.

Then, in the illustrated sensible stimuli table 51, for each particular information, it is associated with information indicating a pattern of sensory stimuli to be generated is sensible stimulus generator 15. Further, the sensible stimulation generation unit 15, because it contains constriction 15a and the vibrating portion 15b, the sensible stimulation table 51 shown, as information indicating the pattern of sensory stimuli, the contraction pattern of the contraction portion 15a, It contains a vibration pattern of the vibration portion 15b.

Pattern of sensory stimuli, as long as such can recognize the contents of the specific information to the user who received the bodily sensation stimulus is such that it is possible to intuitively recognize the content of the specific information it is preferable.

For example, among the specific information included in the perceived stimulation table 51 of FIG. 3, the image ( "I did it ~!") Is an image showing how a person pushed up the fist, dynamism, Koyo feeling, and fulfillment is an image to feel like. Therefore, also the pattern of sensory stimuli to be associated with this specific information, fulfillment and dynamism, it is preferable that the pattern feel Koyo feeling. In other words, the pattern of sensory stimuli associated to this particular information, it is preferable to a representation emotion indicated by the specific information. For example, in the illustrated example, the image ( "I did it ~!") Is a shrinkage pattern peak contraction intensity occurs (specifically four) multiple consecutively, to the contraction being performed time a vibration pattern that generates vibrations is associated. That is, according to experience stimulation table 51 shown, an image ( "I did it ~!") Upon receipt of a message containing, while tightening of multiple continuous with constriction 15a (specifically, four) generates a sensible stimulus that vibrates the vibrating portion 15b. This experience stimulation, since it is what gives the image ( "I did it ~!") And common sense (such as a sense of movement and Koyo feeling), a user who has received this experience stimulation, the contents of the message, confirmed by visual even without, it can be recognized by the experience.

On the other hand, among the specific information included in the perceived stimulation table 51 of FIG. 3, the image ( "reconciliation") is an image showing the state that holding hands Two human feel intimacy, and the like unity is an image to be. Therefore, in the image, and one contraction pattern peak contraction strength, and vibration pattern that generates vibrations of 2 times the shrinkage is carried out time are associated. That is, according to experience stimulation table 51 shown, an image upon receipt of a message containing ( "reconciliation"), while clamping the once with constriction 15a, sensible stimulus that vibrates the vibrating portion 15b 2 times generate. Of this sensible stimulation, vibration of two times, the image ( "reconciliation") to remind the two human included, tightening once generated with these vibrations, recalls the sense of unity Two human make. Thus, the user having received this experience stimulation, the contents of the message, not even to confirm visually, can be recognized by the experience.

Furthermore, the specific information of the text contained in perceived stimulation table 51 in FIG. 3 ( "sad"), the contraction pattern is not associated, only the vibration pattern is associated. Then, the vibration pattern, after a short vibration is a pattern that oscillates briefly again at a predetermined time. Such patterns of experience stimulation, stimulation compared to the other patterns shown in FIG small, since those reminiscent of sadness and loneliness, the user that received this experience stimulation, the content of the message, Needless to confirm visually, it can be recognized by the experience.

It should be noted that, in the specific information, such as "sad" above, may contain information indicating the emotion. Then, it may have been included a plurality of specific information corresponding to the same emotion sensible stimuli table 51. For example, as the specific information corresponding to the feelings of sadness, in addition to the text of the "sad", may include an image indicating sadness. In this case, a plurality of specific information corresponding to the same emotion, it is preferable to associate the pattern of common experience irritation. Then, sensory stimulus to be associated with the specific information indicating the emotion, it is preferable to those representing the emotion. As a result, the user who receives the experience stimulation, it is easy to recognize the emotion that has been put in the message.

Thus, in the present embodiment, each of the members which generate different sensible stimuli (vibration and contraction), an instruction to generate a different experience irritation. According to the above configuration, compared to the configuration using one type of sensory stimulus, it generates a sensible stimulation of numerous variations.

Experience stimulation instructing section 34 instructs to generate a sensible stimulus to sensible stimulation generation unit 15 that the wristwatch type terminal 10 is provided.
