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.
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!
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.
Our paper “Merging Camera and Object Haptic Motion Effects for Improved 4D Experiences” won the best paper award (2nd place) in the Korea Haptics Conference 2023. Please give a big hand to the authors, Jaejun Park, Sangyoon Han, and Seungmoon Choi!
