- We applied phantom sensation and sensory saltation
to generate spatial and directional information using a
hand-held device providing vibrotactile cues, T-hive. A
sphere-shape is applied to the handle of the T-Hive for
comfortable gripping, and the input part can provide
six degrees of freedom of motion for the handle. To
maintain isolation among vibrotactile actuators, the
surface of the sphere is divided into several pieces.
Each vibrating module consists of a vibration motor, a
section of sphere surface, and a vibration isolator. As
an evaluation of the developed device, two experiments
were conducted to test whether phantom sensation is
applicable to the entire hand uniformly. Our results
show that the phantom sensation occurs whole hand
uniformly. Also, spatial and directional information is
useful for displaying intuitive information for object
control with vibrotactile feedback.
