The Effects of Natural Haptic Interface on Users’ Virtual Experiences in an Air-Writing Text Input and Recognition System

Sat, May 27, 8:00 to 9:15, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Floor: 2, Indigo Ballroom C


The current study is designed to investigate the use of the natural haptic ring interface would affect users’ psychological and behavioral responses associated with the use and adoption of a particular air-writing system. In order to test possible effects of the haptic ring interface, we developed an air-writing board system which consists of a commercial flat-panel display and a Microsoft Kinect tracking sensor. In addition, a small, wearable haptic ring interface was integrated into the system so that users were given intuitive and natural physical feedback to their actions even in the real space. The present study used a 2 (no haptic interface vs. haptic ring interface) x 2 (no visual cues vs. visual cues) between-subjects factorial design for an experiment. The findings demonstrated that the natural haptic interface had statistically significant positive effects on subjects’ feelings of physical presence, enjoyment, and intentions to use the air-writing system.
