Abstract

We developed novel haptic interfaces, FlexTorque and FlexTensor that enable realistic physical interaction with real and Virtual Environments. The idea behind FlexTorque is to reproduce human muscle structure, which allows us to perform dexterous manipulation and safe interaction with environment in daily life. FlexTorque suggests new possibilities for highly realistic, very natural physical interaction in virtual environments. There are no restrictions on the arm movement, and it is not necessary to hold a physical object during interaction with objects in virtual reality. Because the system can generate strong forces, even though it is light-weight, easily wearable, and intuitive, users experience a new level of realism as they interact with virtual environments.
