Abstract

We describe the design and the implementation of a force display for immersive projection displays. To give the user maximum freedom of motion in a large working space, it is necessary to use a portable force display that is grounded on the user's body. Therefore, we developed a portable (wearable) force display called HapticGEAR which makes use of the tension of wires grounded on the user's back. This device is designed to reduce user's fatigue and to have fewer influence on the user's motion and sight.
