抜粋

While computers excel at augmenting user's cognitive abilities, only recently we started utilizing their full potential to enhance our physical abilities. More and more wearable force-feedback devices have been developed based on exoskeletons, electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) or pneumatic actuators. The latter, pneumatic-based artificial muscles, are of particular interest since they strike an interesting balance: lighter than exoskeletons and more precise than EMS. However, the promise of using artificial muscles to actually support skill acquisition and training users is still lacking empirical validation. In this paper, we unveil how pneumatic artificial muscles impact skill acquisition, using two-handed drumming as an example use case. To understand this, we conducted a user study comparing participants' drumming performance after training with the audio or with our artificial-muscle setup. Our haptic system is comprised of four pneumatic muscles and is capable of actuating the user's forearm to drum accurately up to 80 bpm. We show that pneumatic muscles improve participants' correct recall of drumming patterns significantly when compared to auditory training.
