Exploring Images: A Haptic Mouse Approach

James Wolfer
2012 International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE)  
Exposing students to touch-enabled computing typ-ically requires the use of expensive Haptic robots. This exhibit demonstrates the adaptation of a commercial, haptically-enabled mouse.  ...  Using a customized Linux device driver and a Python imaging script, we allow users to "virtually touch" images.  ...  A haptic mouse interface is also described by Takasaki et.al. [3] .  ...

Multi-modal exploration of small artifacts

Pablo Figueroa, Mauricio Coral, Pierre Boulanger, Juan Borda, Eduardo Londoño, Felipe Vega, Flavio Prieto, Diego Restrepo
2009 Proceedings of the 16th ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology - VRST '09  
We use this multi-modal interface in a novel way and in a novel context in order to provide virtual replicas that can be weighed, cleaned, and explored as if they were close to a visitor's hand.  ...  By using a commercial haptic interface, loud speakers, and stereo displays, one can allow visitors to touch, hear, and observe in stereo those precious artifacts.  ...  We thank the AMMI Lab at the University of Alberta for lending us a high-precision scanner for this project, and to the Gold Museum for granting us access to selected pieces of their collection.  ...

Designing gaze-supported multimodal interactions for the exploration of large image collections

Sophie Stellmach, Sebastian Stober, Andreas Nürnberger, Raimund Dachselt
2011 Proceedings of the 1st Conference on Novel Gaze-Controlled Applications - NGCA '11  
In a user-centered design approach, we elicited how users would use the aforementioned input combinations.  ...  Though several researchers have indicated the particular high potential of gaze-based interaction for pointing tasks, often gazeonly approaches are investigated.  ...  Steadily growing video, image, and music collections demand new approaches to keep this content accessible to a user.  ...

Haptic Navigation and Exploration of High Quality Pre-rendered Environments [article]

Robert George Laycock, Stephen David Laycock, Andy M. Day
2006 VAST: International Symposium on Virtual Reality  
In particular, the approach provides the user with the ability to touch the content of the animations and to freely orientate themselves in any direction, leading to haptically aware movies.  ...  This component is illustrated within a virtual tour framework enabling users to navigate semi-prescribed routes using haptic feedback both in a spatial and temporal context.  ...  However, these approaches require a computer generated image to be rendered at interactive frame rates.  ...
