The Interaction Laboratory (former Haptics and Virtual Reality Laboratory) at POSTECH, directed by Prof. Seungmoon Choi, seeks to find and design easy, effective, and novel interaction methods between human users and a system of interest, e.g., computers, robots, cars, and electronic device, with emphasis on physical interaction where the human somatosensory system has the major role.
The metaverse content “Ballet Metanique,” created by our lab and the Art & Technology Lab of the Korea National University of Arts, was invited to “Ars Electronica Festival 2022”, a prestigious festival in the field of media art. Jung Ho Seok and Kim Joon Woo increased the immersion of the work by implementing haptic technology that responds to sound through haptic vests that give vibration feedback and gloves that give off heat and cold sensations. They will continue their joint research to provide new experiences that cross the boundaries of art and technology.
