Unaware haptic perception is often inferred but rarely demonstrated empirically. In this paper we present evidence for effects of unaware haptic stimuli on users' motor interaction with virtual objects. Using a 3D hapto-visual virtual reality, we ran a texture-difference-recognition test in which subjects glided a pen-like stylus along a virtual surface with varying roughness. We found that subjects were not aware of changes in texture roughness below a threshold limit, yet the normal force<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener noreferrer" href="https://doi.org/10.1162/pres.18.6.413">doi:10.1162/pres.18.6.413</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/apsyzuf3yndapcsslgtqxexpfa">fatcat:apsyzuf3yndapcsslgtqxexpfa</a> </span>

These results suggest that performance can be affected, through subliminal cues. Based on results from visual perception studies, we also tested the impact of context background conditions on perception of unaware cues. We measured the threshold of awareness to changes in texture for several reference stimuli. We found that indeed, as in visual perception, this threshold for discriminating between the roughness of surfaces increases when texture gets smoother, i.e. sensitivity changes as a function of the background context. Implications are mainly in design of VR especially remote manipulation of objects.
