Do you feel what you see? multimodal perception in virtual reality
This paper discusses how different physically existing materials can be mapped on virtual textures
in mixed reality environments by carrying out an explorative user study (n=101). For physical materials-in form of 3d trackable and moveable cubes-acrylic,
wood and aluminum have been used. The virtual textures convey the impression of ceramic, fabric, glass, leather, paper, wood, acrylic, quartz, granite and aluminum.
The study reveals which virtual textures match well with the different virtual textures and which do not match at all.
Keywords: haptics, mixed reality, perception, virtual reality
