project objectives

The main objective of the project is to develop a new generation of multimodal and multisensory interfaces, supporting free-hand interaction with virtual shapes, consisting of:    

  • multimodal interface based on fusion of force feedback, sound and vision for representing global and local properties of shape and material, which can be perceived statically or dynamically during exploration and modification of digital shapes performed by users through free-hand, unconstrained, robust and ergonomic interaction
  • novel haptic and tangible interfaces allowing users to modify digital shapes through free-hand interaction which aims at exploiting users’ dexterity and skills when physically interacting with materials.
