Virtual reality (VR) researches are growing in the recent years. To achieve immersive and versatile VR experiences, besides visual or audio feedback, many researches explore various haptic feedback in VR interactions. However, haptic feedback consists of complicated physical change, and is perceived by different neurons on the body. Therefore, a lot of haptic sensations are still not provided or explored by off-the-shelves products, such as Oculus and Vive with vibration feedback on controllers or Nintendo Switch Labo VR with some haptic feedback using cardboards, and relative researches. Therefore, there is still a gap between the VR haptic effects achieved by the current methods and the effects expected by users as in the movie Ready Player One. This talk is going to introduce a series of our VR haptic works to enhance VR experiences using innovative haptic feedback, and briefly share the process and experience of performing novel technique research in human-computer interaction (HCI).


Hsin-Ruey (Ray) Tsai is an assistant professor of Department of Computer Science and Digital Content and Technologies Program, National Chengchi University (NCCU), Taipei, Taiwan since August 2019. He received the Ph.D. from National Taiwan University (NTU) in December 2017, visited the University of Tokyo 2017-2018 and was a postdoctoral researcher in NTU until July 2019. His current research interests are about VR/AR and haptic interactions in the human-computer interaction (HCI) field.
