Summary:

Presenter(s):

FacePush: Experiencing Pressure Forces on Face with HMDs

Summary: Attendee interacts with FacePush system through two applications. She/he stands at the center of our floor plan and starts experiencing our game with haptic feedback provided by FacePush. Attendee has to wear wrist straps on both hands in the second application.

Leg-Jack: Generation of the sensation of walking by electrical and kinesthetic stimuli to the lower limbs

Summary: Leg-Jack is a neurosensory and kinesthetic stimulation system that combines an electrical stimulus applied to tendons, a kinesthetic stimulus to the lower limb, and an audio-visual stimulus to impart a walking sensation to a seated user. The combination of these stimuli significantly increased the subjective ratings of the walking sensation.

Hirofumi Kaneko is a master's degree student at Tokyo Metropolitan University. He obtained the bachelor degree in mechanical system engineering from Tokyo Metropolitan in 2016. His research interests include development of electrical haptic display, virtual reality and ultra reality.


Demo of Olfactory Display with Less Residual Odor

Summary: An olfactory display is a device which provides various scents to a user. We tried to reduce the odorant spreads into the ambient by installing the air intake and inner deodorant filter. Based on the method, we include olfaction in VR games to provide the remarkable sensation to a user.

Gill+Man: Breathing Through Gills Experience System

Summary: We propose breathing with gills simulate system Gill+Man. This system can be presenting sense of breathing through gills likefish. Gill+Man system is consisting 3 devices, breath sensing device, SSPD(Swallowing Sense Presenting Device) and GSPD(Gill Sense Presenting Device). These devices use simple stimulation and compound for make gills sense.
