    Abstract

    We propose a concept of a novel interaction strategy for providing rich haptic feedback in Virtual Reality (VR), when each user's finger is connected to micro-quadrotor with a wire. Described technology represents the first flying wearable haptic interface. The solution potentially is able to deliver high resolution force feedback to each finger during fine motor interaction in VR. The tips of tethers are connected to the centers of quadcopters under their bottom. Therefore, flight stability is increasing and the interaction forces are becoming stronger which allows to use smaller drones.
