Abstract

With the development of virtual reality (VR) technology, many applications require force display systems. However, existing products are not widely used owing to their inconvenient fit and the possibility that the devices may inflict injuries on the user. This study aims to develop a VR suit that can display a force to each joint. The force is generated by a functional material, electrorheological (ER) gel. In this paper, we discuss the development of a device that attaches to the arm, and evaluate the usefulness of the ER gel wearable brake.
