Abstract

Thermocons describes our work in progress for evaluat- ing thermal haptic feedback on the forehead as a viable feedback modality for integration with head mounted de- vices. The purpose was to identify the thermal percep- tion for simultaneous feedback at three locations of the forehead. We provided hot-only, cold-only and hot/cold- mixed thermal stimulations at these location to identify the sensitivity for accurate perception. Our evaluation with 9 participants indicated that perceiving cold-only stimulations were signficantly better with an accuracy of 88%. The perception accuracy for hot-only and hotcold- mixed stimulations were 66% and 65% respectively.
