Abstract

We propose Liquid-VR, a system that simulates wetness and liquid sensations for the whole body by providing a combination of thermal and vibrotactile stimuli from the user’s face and across the upper body to the lower body. A head mounted display with thermal and vibrotactile modules simulates the wetness sensations on the face with the displayed visuals. These sensations are carried through out the body by using an array of vibrotactile modules placed on the collarbones and the feet actuated to simulate moving phantom sensations. We demonstrate this experience through virtual reality application scenarios such as being in a shower or being in side a glass of liquid.
