With recent developments in 3D display interfaces, which are now capable of delivering rich and immersive visual experiences, a need has arisen to develop haptic-feedback technologies that can seamlessly be integrated with such displays -- in order to maintain the sense of visual realism during interactions and to enable multimodal user experiences. We present an approach to augmenting conventional and 3D displays with free-space haptic feedback capabilities via a large number of closely-spaced…

Enhancing Interaction with Augmented Reality through Mid-Air Haptic Feedback: Architecture Design and User Feedback

This paper gathers the description of a flexible architecture designed to deploy haptically enabled AR applications both for mobile and wearable visualization devices and reveals some design issues when working with haptic AR.

Mid-Air Haptic Cues for Safety-Critical Communication: (Re-)Exploring Air-Vortex Rings in Human-Machine Interaction

Air vortex rings are explored as an alternative to ultrasound-based MAH feedback systems for communicating critical information and a vortex generator design is presented that provides a wide interaction space and enables more complex feedback design.

Creating Illusion of Wind Blowing with Air Vortex-induced Apparent Tactile Motion

This study proposes a method for creating a sense of wind blowing with air cannons based on the perception of apparent tactile motion (ATM) that provides clear and low-latency tactile sensations in a specific area.

Virtual reality based kinematics for assessment of post-stroke upper limb function

The end-point kinematic variables, particularly movement time and number of velocity peaks, were demonstrated to be most effective in characterizing the upper extremity function and for capturing the improvement over time after stroke.

A Proposal of Interaction with 3D Object using Hologram by Reflection on Low-Cost Devices

This paper propose a new technique of hologram interaction using hologram by reflection and the cellphone's front camera to capture finger position by the user using OpenCV libraries and methods. The

SHITARA: Sending Haptic Induced Touchable Alarm by Ring-shaped Air vortex

SHITARA is proposed, a novel accessibility method with air vortex rings that provides a non-contact haptic cue for a DHH person that could also be used with new accessibility approaches for the DHH’s daily life.



AirTap : a multimodal interactive interface platform with free-space cutaneous haptic feedback via toroidal air-vortices

AirTap is an open-source system that uses 16 air-vortex-ring generators to deliver targeted, localized, unambiguous, free-space haptic feedback onto a user’s hand when interacting with 3D virtual objects on a stereoscopic display.

AirWave: non-contact haptic feedback using air vortex rings

This paper reviews vortex formation theory and explores specific design parameters that allow us to generate vortices capable of imparting haptic feedback, and develops a prototype system called AirWave, which can be used to direct tactile stimuli to different regions of the human body.

Non-contact Method for Producing Tactile Sensation Using Airborne Ultrasound

A new tactile device which produces stress fields in 3D space based on a non-linear phenomenon of ultrasound, acoustic radiation pressure, which is expected to provide high-fidelity tactile feedback for the interaction with 3D visual objects.

Laser-induced thermoelastic effects can evoke tactile sensations

This article suggests a new way for non-contact haptic stimulation that uses laser, which has potential advantages such as mid-air stimulation, high spatial precision, and long working distance and demonstrates such tactile stimulation can be enabled by laser-induced thermoelastic effects.

LaserStroke: Mid-air Tactile Experiences on Contours Using Indirect Laser Radiation

This demonstration presents a novel form of mid-air tactile display, LaserStroke, that makes use of a laser irradiated on the elastic medium attached to the skin that can elicit tapping and stroking sensations to a user's palm from a distance.

Mid-air tactile stimulation using laser-induced thermoelastic effects: The first study for indirect radiation

This paper reports our recent finding that a laser that is radiated on a thin light-absorbing elastic medium attached on the skin can elicit a tactile sensation of mechanical tap. Laser radiation to

AIREAL: interactive tactile experiences in free air

The details of the AIREAL design and control, experimental evaluations of the device's performance, as well as an exploration of the application space of free air haptic displays are reported, believing that the results reported are generalizable and will inform the design of haptic shows based on alternative principles offree air tactile actuation.
