This paper deals with a motion-based handheld haptic interface. A 6 DOF motion sensor and hybrid vibrators are embedded into the device. With wrist motion, a user controls the position of the pointer on the screen. Haptic feedback is provided in response to the manipulation of a GUI element. Gyroscope-based motion sensing and the rapid response of a hybrid actuator improve the usability of a remote control for a GUI.
