Tactile Interaction for Scientific Visualization
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. A CyberTouchTM(CyberTouch is a trademark of Immersion) with 18 sensors and 6 vibrators (one per finger, and one in the palm), also used for application control.
Four paradigms have been proposed for:
scalar datasets exploration,
vector field exploration,
cutting plane positionning.
