How firmly a haptic device, such as a smartwatch, is coupled to the body can change how its haptic effects are perceived. However, hapticians often rely on vague subjective coupling characteristics such as ``strapped snugly'' or ``tight yet …
This project explores how simple 3D printed tensioners can be used to provide visual coupling feedback when putting on wearable haptic systems.
In this project, we propose a series of haptic illusions and demonstrations that can be fabricated using any FDM 3D printer.
All current tested illusions can be downloaded from the project’s github repository.
