Abstract

This paper describes a new interaction technique for Graphical User Interface (GUI) which is referred to as "VisualHaptics" because it creates haptic sensations using visual cues. VisualHaptics can convey haptic cues, reminiscient of sensations received through the sense of touch, by changing the shape, movement, and size of the cursor in a GUI. For example, VisualHaptics can express "roughness" of materials by jiggling a cursor slightly.
