    HapSeat: a novel approach to simulate motion in audiovisual experiences


Entry Number: 06


    The HapSeat is a novel and inexpensive approach for simulating motion sensations in audiovisual experience. Multiple forcefeedbacks are applied to the sitting users’ body to generate a 6DoF sensation of motion as users are experiencing passive navigation. A set of force-feedback devices (a headrest and mobile armrests) are arranged around a seat so that they can apply forces to the user. Several video sequences highlight the capabilities of the HapSeat. We propose SIGGRAPH attendees to experience these videos enhanced by haptic effects of motion.
