We propose Electric Food Texture System, which can present virtual food texture such as hardness and elasticity by electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to the masseter muscle. In our previous study, we investigated the feasibility to detect user's bite with a photoreflector and that to construct database of food texture with electromyography sensors. In this paper, we investigated the feasibility to control virtual food texture by EMS. We conducted an experiment to reveal the relationship of the parameters of EMS and those of virtual food texture. The experimental results show that the higher strength of EMS is, the harder virtual food texture is, and the longer duration of EMS is, the more elastic virtual food texture is.

We propose Electric Food Texture System, which can present virtual food texture such as hardness and elasticity by electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to the masseter muscle. In our previous study, we investigated the feasibility to detect user's bite ...
Uniformity Based Haptic Alert Network
Salem Karani, Chaitanya Varanasi
Pages: 201-202
Full text: PDFPDF

We experience haptic feedback on a wide variety of devices in the modern day, including cellphones, tablets, and smartwatches. However haptic alerts can quickly become disruptive rather than helpful to a user when multiple devices are providing feedback ...
Flying User Interface
Pramod Verma
Pages: 203-204
Full text: PDFPDF

This paper describes a special type of drone called "Flying User Interface", comprised of a robotic projector-camera system, an onboard digital computer connected with the Internet, sensors, and a hardware interface capable of sticking to any surface ...
Prevention of Unintentional Input While Using Wrist Rotation for Device Configuration
Han Joo Chae, Jeong-in Hwang, Yuri Choi, Yieun Kim, Kyle Koh, Jinwook Seo
Pages: 205-206
Full text: PDFPDF

We describe the design of the safeguard interface that helps users avoid unintentional input while using wrist rotation. When configuring the parameters of various devices, our interface helps reduce the chance of making accidental changes by delaying ...
Peripersonal Space in Virtual Reality: Navigating 3D Space with Different Perspectives
Jooyeon Lee, Manri Cheon, Seong-Eun Moon, Jong-Seok Lee
Pages: 207-208
Full text: PDFPDF

We introduce the concept of "peripersonal space" of an avatar in 3D virtual reality and discuss how it plays an important role on 3D navigation with different perspectives. By analyzing the eye-gaze data of avatar-based navigation with first-person perspective ...
A Novel Real Time Monitor System of 3D Printing Layers for Better Slicing Parameter Setting
Yu-Kai Chiu, Hao-Yu Chang, Wan-ling Yang, Yu-Hsuan Huang, Ouhyoung Ming
Pages: 209-210
Full text: PDFPDF

We proposed a novel real time monitor system of 3D printer with dual cameras, which capture and reconstruct the printed result layer by layer. With the reconstructed image, we can apply computer vision technique to evaluate the difference with the ideal ...
Hilbert Curves: A Tool for Resolution Independent Haptic Texture
William Frier, Kyoungwon Seo, Sriram Subramanian
Pages: 211-212
Full text: PDFPDF

Haptic systems usually stimulate the kinesthetic aspects of the sense of touch, i.e. force feedback systems. But more and more devices aim to stimulate the cutaneous part of the sense of touch to reproduce more complex tactile sensations. To do so, they ...
Friend*Chip: A Bracelet with Digital Pet for Socially Inclusive Games for Children
Eleuda Nunez, Francesco Visentin, Kenji Suzuki
Pages: 213-214
Full text: PDFPDF

Learning in groups have different potential benefits for children. They have the opportunity to solve problems together, to share experiences and to develop social skills. However, from teachers point of view, creating a safe and inclusive positive environment ...
NeverMind: Using Augmented Reality for Memorization
Oscar Rosello, Marc Exposito, Pattie Maes
Pages: 215-216
Full text: PDFPDF

NeverMind is an interface and application designed to support human memory. We combine the memory palace memorization method with augmented reality technology to create a tool to help anyone memorize more effectively. Preliminary experiments show that ...
Analysis of Sequential Tasks in Use Context of Mobile Apps
Jihye Lee, Sangwon Lee
Pages: 217-218
Full text: PDFPDF

Most of the work on context-aware systems has focused on the context of time, location, and activity. Previous studies on the context flow have been primarily conducted on a qualitative basis. This paper proposes a new approach from a quantitative perspective. ...
Towards Understanding Collaboration around Interactive Surfaces: Exploring Joint Visual Attention
Hidde van der Meulen, Petra Varsanyi, Lauren Westendorf, Andrew L. Kun, Orit Shaer
Pages: 219-220
Full text: PDFPDF

In this abstract, we present a novel method for exploring the visual behavior of multiple users engaged in a collaborative task around an interactive surface. The proposed method synchronizes input from multiple eye trackers, describes the visual behavior ...
Resolving Spatial Variation And Allowing Spectator Participation In Multiplayer VR
Misha Sra, Dhruv Jain, Arthur Pitzer Caetano, Andres Calvo, Erwin Hilton, Chris Schmandt
Pages: 221-222
Full text: PDFPDF

Multiplayer virtual reality (VR) games introduce the problem of variations in the physical size and shape of each user's space for mapping into a shared virtual space. We propose an asymmetric approach to solve the spatial variation problem, by allowing ...
OctaRing: Examining Pressure-Sensitive Multi-Touch Input on a Finger Ring Device
Hyunchul Lim, Jungmin Chung, Changhoon Oh, SoHyun Park, Bongwon Suh
Pages: 223-224
Full text: PDFPDF

In this paper, we introduce OctaRing, an octagon-shaped finger ring device that facilitates pressure-sensitive multi- touch gestures. To explore the feasibility of its prototype, we conducted an experiment and investigated users' sensorimotor skills ...
