A Study on the Creation of Art Metaverse Contents Incorporating Haptic Technology, “Ballet Metanique”
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.

Two new members entered the interaction lab in the fall semester of 2022. Heeyeon Kim (left) and Jaehyeok An (right) started their degrees with a master’s program.
In 2022, we published several papers about haptic perception/rendering, novel interaction methods/systems, and 4D motion effects. For haptic perception, “Perceived Intensity Model of Dual-Frequency Superimposed Vibration: Pythagorean Sum” was accepted in IEEE ToH, “Perception of Electrostatic Friction Stimuli in Free Surface Exploration” was presented in the IEEE Haptics Symposium, and “A Preliminary Study on the Perceptual Independence Between Vibrotactile and Thermal Senses” was published in the EuroHaptics 2022. For novel interaction methods, our research about “Vibration-Augmented Buttons: Information Transmission Capacity and Application to Interaction Design” was presented in the 2022 CHI. About 4D motion effects, “Data-Driven Rendering of Motion Effects for Walking Sensation in Different Gaits” was presented in the 2022 ToH. For more information, please see our publications tab.
