A set of videos showing, from an egocentric perspective, affective touch (stroking touch) being applied to the dorsal side of a caucasian males' right forearm. Touches are applied by a caucasian female human, a Nao robot, a mannikin arm, and a plastic tube. Touches are applied at different velocities: 0.3cm/s, 1cm/s, 2cm/s, 3cm/s, 10cm/s, and 30cm/s. The 2cm/s video was originally intended as an example video. Video resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels. Video names include relevant stimuli description (e.g., H03 is human touch at 0.3cm/s).

Videos were originally created for studying perceptions of affective touch in an online study. Please use the following reference when using these videos in your research:
