Haptic Human-Computer Interaction

Haptic human-computer interplay is interplay among a human machine person and the pc person interface in line with the robust human feel of contact. Haptic has been mentioned and exploited for your time, relatively within the context of desktop video games. despite the fact that, to date, little realization has been paid to the final rules of haptic HCI and the systematic use of haptic units for making improvements to potency, effectiveness, and delight in HCI.

Visualization facilitates understanding of both large-scale and small-scale features of the data. It can be especially valuable in allowing the perception of patterns linking local features. 4 • INFORMATION VISUALIZATION: PERCEPTION FOR DESIGN Visualization facilitates hypothesis formation. , 1997). This first chapter has the general goal of defining the scope of a science of visualization based on perceptual principles. Much of it is devoted to outlining the intellectual basis of the endeavor and providing an overview of the kinds of experimental techniques appropriate to visualization research.

This visual system has evolved over tens of millions of years to enable creatures to perceive and act within the natural environment. Although very flexible, the visual system is tuned to receiving data presented in certain ways, but not in others. If we can understand how the mechanism works, we can produce better displays and better thinking tools. This page intentionally left blank CHAPTER 2 The Environment, Optics, Resolution, and the Display We can think of the world itself as an information display.

The Passamoquoddy Bay image highlights a number of the advantages of visualization: • Visualization provides an ability to comprehend huge amounts of data. The important information from more than a million measurements is immediately available. • Visualization allows the perception of emergent properties that were not anticipated. In this visualization, the fact that the pockmarks appear in lines is immediately evident. The perception of a pattern can often be the basis of a new insight. In this case, the pockmarks align with the direction of geological faults, suggesting a cause.
