Tactile Interaction for Scientific Visualization

Participants : Xavier Lepaul, Ambroise Guabello, Thomas Vincent, Sabine Coquillart.

In parallel to the two-finger interaction study, enhancing scientific visualization with tactile interaction has also been investigated. For that purpose, two devices have been employed. A vibratory tool for producing vibrations on the fingertip, developed from a cellphone vibrator by the SED department of INRIA Rhône-Alpes.
