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.


Our Haptics Symposium 2024!

We participated in 2024 IEEE Haptics Symposium in Long Beach, California, USA.
Our team members, Dajin Lee, Jiwan Lee, Jungeun Lee, and Dongguen Kim presented their research, which had been published in IEEE Transactions on Haptics Short papers.
Dajin Lee and Dongguen Kim were nominated for the Best ToH Short Paper award for their papers titled “Effects of Contact Force on Vibrotactile Perceived Intensity Across the Upper Body” and “Sound-to-Touch Crossmodal Pitch Matching for Short Sounds,” respectively.
Additionally, Jiwan Lee demonstrated her project, “Telemetry-based Haptic Rendering for Racing Game Experience Improvement.”

Class of 2023

Sangyoon Han was awarded his Ph.D., and Hoseok Jung was awarded his master’s degree. Sangyoon Han presented a Ph.D. thesis about generating motion effects for moving objects in 4D content. He is going to continue his career as a researcher at Samsung Electronics. Hoseok Jung presented a master’s thesis about encounter-type thermal haptic device using multiple rotating pre-heated peltier actuators and continue his career as a researcher at Stanford Center Korea. Praise for the bright future of our graduates!

Our KHCI 2024!

We participated in Korea HCI 2024 in Hongcheon.
Jaehyuk Ahn presented his first research paper titled “Event-Independent Haptic Feedback in a VR Rhythm Game Using a Haptic Garment.” Heeyeon Kim demonstrated her project named “Comfort-Inducing Haptic Rendering for Relaxation in Virtual Reality.” Seungmoon, Dajin, Junwoo, Hyunuk, Siheon, Dongguen, and Suheon enjoyed skiing and snowboarding.
