Abstract

This article describes the development of a wire-driven multi-finger haptic interface named SPIDAR-10(Space Interface Device for Artificial Reality), which can render a 3 degree-of-freedom spatial force feedback for human fingers through 4 wires attached to each fingertip. SPIDAR-10 enables users to manipulate virtual objects in a VR world with ten fingers of both hands. With two rotary cylindrical frames, which motors are mounted on, the interference of the wires can be reduced. A method of frame control is also proposed. The experimental results of the performance of the basic SPIDAR system and rotary frame are also given.
