Abstract:Virtual Reality (VR) is a multifaceted area with great potential from pure entertainment to scienti c research. Due to technological limitations, VR for the last thirty years has not really caught on since users were always left feeling dizzy and uncomfortable after a few minutes of using it. With the emergence of computationally precise devices like the Oculus Rift and the Leap Motion, there has been a resurgence of interest in VR and human computer interaction, a subset of VR that is within the haptic and tactile realm. This thesis provides a description of a system that provides haptic feedback when touching a virtual object, and also demonstrates the e cacy through an experiment. The thesis should hopefully provide the groundwork that would allow those in di erent elds to be able to add a virtual and immersive environment onto their own projects and visions, from virtual entertainment to a diagnosis in interdisciplinary neuroscience.
