Funneling and saltation are two major illusory tactile feedback techniques.
We have newly verified for the first time that funneling and saltation, the two main perceptual tactile illusions exist also on virtual objects without any physical medium.
Such “out of the body” experience through funneling and saltation has a good application to future vibro-tactile interface for augmented and virtual reality with minimal number of actuators.
We presented possible ways to interact with physical, virtual and augmented objects.
We hope to be able to simulate various indirect dynamic effects (e.g. holding a virtual bottle and feeling for the moving objects in it) using minimal number of vibrators and the effects of saltation and funneling.
