Virtual Reality Controller with Directed Haptic Feedback to Increase Immersion

Tobias Hermann, Andreas Burkard, Stefan Radicke

Abstract

In the context of this paper we propose the Directed Feedback Controller (DFC). This is a prototype controller, which is able to generate haptic feedback from all directions. Its purpose is to increase the immersion in Virtual Reality (VR) games. A user study has shown that the current prototype is perceived as very innovative. The participants enjoyed the experience and would tell their friends about it. In addition, most of the respondents see great potential in the idea behind the DFC. However, the DFC still has some minor issues. For example, due to the high weight of the DFC, the participants could not always determine the exact direction of the impact. Therefore, several ideas for weight reduction are proposed at the end of this paper.
