Apparatus for presenting visual, haptic and multisenory higher-level stimuli

The project required the development of an apparatus that was capabale of presenting both tactile and visual stimuli interactively and at the same time. We adapted an apparatus (Virtual Tactile Display), which was developed by the UHEI partners (Electronic Vision Group at the Kirchhoff-Institut für Physik, University of Heidelberg) and created the Virtual Haptic Device. The important characteristic of the VHD is that it requires active exploration, unlike previous visual tactile devices, which only use passive touch. Moreover, visual stimuli can be displayed at the same time either as a whole image or as part-based image through a manipulable sized aperture.
