Generating an organic and dynamic behavior that gives a realistic haptic feedback in a Virtual Reality environment is a challenging task, which is one of the foci of the MIROS platforms.
We present an Interactive Chair, a 3 degrees of freedom (DOF) platform that is able to support the human`s back in order to perform realistic interaction with objects in a virtual environment.
Thanks to this interactive and modular platform, one can perceive haptic feedback on a human-scale level, which gives a better immersion in Virtual Reality. A great fit could be, for example, in a drone or racing simulator.
During this demonstration, you can interact with this device, by sitting on the chair where the MIROS platform is attached and experience the interaction in a VR environment on a screen, through your back.
