Abstract

As an alternative to enhance user's experience in VR contents, we propose KABUTO, a head mounted haptic display designed to induce upper-body movement by the application of kinesthetic feedback to the head. KABUTO can provide impact and resistance by using flywheels and brakes in response to various head movements, as extensive head movements lead to dynamic movement throughout the upper body. We have also designed an application which enables the user to become a rhinoceros beetle.The user can feel the weight of the swinging horn or the impact of the horn flinging object. In the demonstration of it, we observed that KABUTO makes users move their upper body aggressively.
