Tactile Echoes: Multisensory Augmented Reality for the Hand

Touch interactions are central to many human activities, but there are few technologies for computationally augmenting free-hand interactions with real environments. Here, we describe Tactile Echoes, a finger-wearable system for augmenting touch …

Methods, devices, and systems for creating localized haptic stimulations on a user

A method of creating localized haptic stimulations on a user includes a wearable device including a plurality of transducers that can each generate one or more waves that propagate away from the wearable device through a medium. The method includes …

Exogenous cueing of visual attention using small, directional, tactile cues applied to the fingertip

The deployment of visual spatial attention can be significantly influenced in an exogenous, presumably bottom-up manner. Traditionally, spatial cueing paradigms have been utilized to come to such conclusions. Although these paradigms have primarily …

Perceptual Limits of Visual-Haptic Simultaneity in Virtual Reality Interactions

The goal of this work is to establish the range of visual-haptic asynchronies that go unnoticed when touching an object. To perform a psychophysical study, however, we would need asynchronous visual-haptic stimuli, but because the contact of the …

Tactile Echoes: A Wearable System for Tactile Augmentation of Objects

We present Tactile Echoes, a wearable system for augmenting tactile interactions with any object. This system senses vibrations in the fingertip that are produced by interactions of the finger with a touched object. It processes the vibration signals …

An Experimental Setup to Test Dual-Joystick Directional Responses to Vibrotactile Stimuli

In this paper we investigate the influence of the location of vibrotactile stimulation in triggering the response made using two handheld joysticks. In particular, we compare performance with stimuli delivered either using tactors placed on the palm …

Experimental Evaluation of Vibrotactile Training Mappings for Dual-Joystick Directional Guidance

Two joystick-based teleoperation is a common method for controlling a remote machine or a robot. Their use could be counter-intuitive and could require a heavy mental workload. The goal of this paper is to investigate whether vibrotactile prompts …

An experimental setup to test dual-joystick directional responses to vibrotactile stimuli

In this paper we investigate the influence of the location of vibrotactile stimulation in triggering the response made using two handheld joysticks. In particular, we compare performance with stimuli delivered either using tactors placed on the palm …
