DefinitionHaptics is a new media that deals with the sense of “touch” and provides an interface for the user to interact with objects through synthesized touch.Traditional media such as audio, video, text and image deal with the hearing and vision human senses. Haptics is a new media that deals with the sense of “touch.” It provides an interface for the user to interact with objects through synthesized touch. When performed over the network, this is known as tele-haptics. Haptics, a term which was derived from the Greek verb “haptesthai” meaning “to touch,” introduces the sense of touch and force in human-computer interaction. Haptics enable the operator to manipulate objects in the environment in a natural and effective way, enhance the sensation of “presence,” and provide information such as stiffness and texture of objects, which cannot be described completely with only visual or audio feedback. The technology has already been explored in contexts as diverse as modeling & ...
