Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This project presents a new display concept, which brings together haptics, augmented and mixed reality and tangible computing within the context of an intuitive conceptual design environment. The project extends the paradigm of augmented prototyping by allowing modelling of virtual geometry on the physical prototype, which can be touched by means of a haptic device. Wireless tracking of the physical prototype is achieved in three different ways by attaching to it a 'Speck', a tracker and Nintendo Wii Remote and it provides continuous tangible interaction. The physical prototype becomes a tangible interface augmented with mixed reality and with a novel 3D haptic design system.
