A new book about haptics!
Prof. Ki-Uk Kim and Seungmoon Choi co-translated an introductory English book about haptics originally written by Lynette Jones. This book is for readers without specific technological backgrounds and made available by Gimmyoung.
New Research Grant!
We have won a new research grant from the Support Program for the Reinforcement of Science Culture Exhibition Service funded the National Research Foundation of Korea. In this project, we will study the technologies, systems, and long-term user experiences for blending real and virtual exhibits in order to promote in-depth, embodied learning of scientific principles, in close collaboration with Prof. Keehoon Kim in mechanical engineering and his lab members. We will be supported 770 million won for 2.5 years.
Lab Summer Outing
We had a half-day lab outing to Jangsa Beach and Okgye Valley, taking adequate precautions against COVID-19. Though it was a rainy day, we had a very fun time together with delicious food. Thank you so much for Gihong and Chaeyong for organizing it!
Lab name is changed to Interaction Laboratory @ POSTECH!
We have renamed our laboratory from Haptics and Virtual Reality Laboratory to Interaction Laboratory, reflecting our expanded research areas over the past 15 years. A new homepage is also launched, which is what you are looking at.
Paper in UIST 2020
Our research about “Augmenting Physical Buttons with Vibrotactile Feedback for Programmable Feels” will be presented in the 2020 UIST in October. This work presents a very simple yet effective method that enables us to diversify the haptic sensation of pressing a physical button by adding a simple vibration signal, as well as its perceptual evaluation results. Congratulations to the authors, Chaeyong Park, Jinhyuk Yoon, and Seungjae Oh!
