Sample text

Electrostatic feedback will be evaluated during the coming year as an alternative to vibrotactile. The next phase of the project is utilizing a low cost, prototype haptic stylus, which incorporates a piezo electric vibration motor, allowing exploration of a 3D object, both on the tablet display, as well as independent of the tablet using a virtual presentation space where the object is perceived to float in front of the user. In the latter approach, the spatial tracking of the stylus position is accomplished using a LeapMotion device.
