Muscle-Propelled Force Feedback: accepted at CHI 2013

Video of participants and myself showing Muscle-Propelled Force Feedback (youtube) Force feedback devices resist miniaturization, because they require physical motors and mechanics. We propose mobile force feedback by eliminating motors and instead actuating the user’s muscles using electrical stimulation. Without the motors, we obtain substantially smaller and more energy-efficient devices. Our prototype fits on the back of a mobile […]
