This resource captures object affordances in a direct, multimodal, and naturalistic way. Following a "thinking aloud" method, spontaneously-generated verbal and motoric data on object affordances have been elicited by 124 participants in a series of three behavioural experiments. The experiments comprised visuo-tactile stimulation stimuli (lithic tools), which were captured audiovisually from two camera-views (frontal/profile). This methodology allowed the acquisition of more than 96 hours of video, audio, and speech covering:
(a) object-feature-action data (e.g., perceptual features, namings, functions),
(b) exploratory Acts (haptic manipulation for feature acquisition/verification),
(c) gestures and demonstrations for object/feature/action description, and
(d) reasoning patterns (e.g., justifications, analogies) for attributing a given characterization.
