Abstract

In this paper, we propose a Gravity Jockey (GJ) system in "Electric Dance Revolution" that allows subjects to experience vestibular sensation by means of galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) synchronized with music rhythms. The Gravity Jockey system enables people using GVS to feel music rhythms not only by the sense of hearing but also by visual perception and balance sensation. And in order to evaluate the effects of this system on user's perception, we conducted psychophysical experiments during GVS with alternating current (AC).
