ABSTRACT IncreTable is a tabletop game inspired by the Incredible Machine. It provides a multi-modal interaction based on a bi-directional projection tabletop, digital pens, a depth camera, and custom-made physical objects, while attracting users for an active ...

    ABSTRACT: For designing a simple and more realistic haptic feedback system, we propose integrating an underactuated mechanism with one-point kinesthetic feedback from the arm with multipoint tactile feedback. By focusing on the division of roles between the cutaneous sensation in fingers and the proprioception in the arm. We have implemented a prototype system that provides kinesthetic feedback to the arm and tactile feedback to the fingers, examined the difference of weight recognition according to the applied point of kinesthetic feedback, and confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: A system is proposed which enables users not only to operate computers by moving their hands in mid-air but also to feel touch feedback on their hands. The system consists of a PC, a markerless hand-tracker for input, and a non-contact tactile display for feedback. The tactile display utilizes ultrasound to produce tactile stimulation from a distance. It is based on a nonlinear phenomenon of ultrasound (acoustic radiation pressure) and the phased array focusing technique. The principles are described and the prototype system is introduced.

    ABSTRACT: Telexistence is fundamentally a concept named for the general technology that enables a human being to have a real-time sensation of being at a place other than where he actually exist, and to interact with the remote environment [Tachi et al. 1990]. We have achieved human-like neck movements to visually interact with a remote object in dimensional space through previous versions of TELESAR [Watanabe et al. 2007]. We introduce "TELESAR V" which maps a user's spinal neck, head and arm movements into a dexterous slave robot and allowing the operator to feel the robot's body as his own body through visual, auditory, kinesthetic and fingertip tactile [Sato et al. 2007] sensation. With TELESAR V, operator can perform teleoperations confidently with no prior practise.
