The Predictive Perception of Dynamic Vibrotactile Stimuli Applied to the Fingertip *

Because the world is dynamic in nature, sensory predictions are invariably important to successful interaction with it. The current experiment examined the influence of dynamic frequency information on the associated perceptions of simple geometric …

Effects of Haptic Feedback on the Wrist during Virtual Manipulation

As an alternative to thimble devices for the fingertips, we investigate haptic systems that apply stimulus to the user's forearm. Our aim is to provide effective interaction with virtual objects, despite the lack of co-location of virtual and …

Haptic Sketches on the Arm for manipulation in virtual reality

We propose a haptic system that applies forces or skin deformation to the user's arm, rather than at the fingertips, for believable interaction with virtual objects as an alternative to complex thimble devices. Such a haptic system would be able to …

New Method to Measure End-to-End Delay of Virtual Reality

A virtual reality (VR) system tracks one or more objects to generate the depiction of a virtual environment from the user's vantage point. No system achieves this instantaneously: changes in the depicted virtual environment are delayed from changes …
