Abstract

We propose a wearable haptic display that indicates the pressure and vibration on the palm for bimanual operations in virtual reality environments. This system aims to provide the touch and stroke sensations of virtual objects or virtual creatures. We constructed a prototype device that can reproduce vertical and shearing forces on the palm and evaluate the capability of the proposed method to recognize the existence of a virtual object in one-handed and two-handed operations.
