PseudoBend is a haptic feedback technique that uses grain vibrations to create illusions of stretching, bending, and twisting on a rigid device. Details of PseudoBend will be publised as a paper at ACM UIST 2019.
This repository contains resources required to replicate PseudoBend, including 3D models to print handles, schematic and firmware for signal generation circuit, and PseudoBend software.
To build the system, you may need the following parts, in addition to the 3D-printed handles. These are the parts used in the implementation in the paper, but you can use alternate parts with similar characteristics.
