The SmartTool: a system for augmented reality of haptics

T. Nojima, D. Sekiguchi, M. Inami, S. Tachi
Proceedings IEEE Virtual Reality 2002  
In this paper, we propose a new concept for the augmented reality of haptics, the SmartTool. The SmartTool responds to the real environment by using real time sensor(s) and a haptic display.  ...  Haptic sensation is very intuitive, and some researchers are focusing on making use of haptics in augmented reality systems.  ...  The authors would like to acknowledge the contributions of Prof. Kunihiko Mabuchi and Dr. Ichiro Kawabuchi for their discussions and technical support.  ...
