Title:


    LevioPole: Mid-air Haptic Interactions using Multirotor

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 13


Description:


    We present LevioPole, a rod-like device that provides mid-air haptic feedback for full-body interaction in virtual reality, augmented reality, or other daily activities. The device is constructed from two rotor units, which are designed using propellers, motors, speed controllers, batteries, and sensors, allowing portability and ease of use. Having each group of rotor units on both ends of the pole, these rotors generate both rotational and linear forces that can be driven according to the target application. In this paper, we introduce example applications in both VR and physical environment; embodied gaming with haptic feedback and walking navigation in a specific direction.
