A comprehensive treatment of force feedback—the hottest area of research in virtual reality
Can interactivity in virtual reality (VR) extend to include our sense of touch?
Could weight, temperature, and texture combine to bring simulated objects to life? Describing cutting-edge technology that will influence the way we interact with computers for years to come, this pioneering book answers yes: not only is it possible, but devices capable of providing force and tactile sensory feedback already exist.
Force and Touch Feedback for Virtual Reality is the first comprehensive source of information on the design, modeling, and applications of force and tactile interfaces for VR. It is a must have for scientists, engineers, psychologists, and developers involved in VR, and for anyone who would like to gain a deeper understanding of this exciting and fast-growing field.
Complete with hundreds of tables, figures, and color illustrations, Force and Touch Feedback for Virtual Reality offers

Virtual Reality (VR) enables us to navigate through computer- controlled worlds, grasping and manipulating objects along the way. With force/tactile feedback, interactivity in VR will extend to include our sense of touch, so that we can feel weight, texture, and temperature in virtual worlds. This is the first book to present a unified treatment of this hot topic, incorporating the latest research results. It also covers other technical aspects of VR, including mathematical modeling, detailed integration issues, and human factors.About the Author:
