Gillette BabyFace haptic tablet experience - case study (Israel)

Beards are bad for babies, whose only language of communication is touch, coincidentally it's also not great for Gillette because you don't wear out your razor as quickly....Research has proven that soft warm contact is essential for baby development. So, how do you convince dads to sacrifice their awesome beards? By creating a skin-to-surface Haptics campaign.

Haptic technology uses electrostatic forces to manipulate the friction between finger and screen.

"Our tablets featured in maternity wards, birth classes and baby-fairs enabling expecting parents to contrast the scratch of a beard stubble vs. a clean-shaven face, just as a baby would." said a spokesperson from Grey Tel-Aviv
