Data density and trend reversals in auditory graphs: Effects on point-estimation and trend-identification tasks
Michael A. Nees, Bruce N. Walker
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1402236.1402237

Auditory graphs—displays that represent quantitative information with sound—have the potential to make data (and therefore science) more accessible for diverse user populations. No research to date, however, has systematically...

A study of the modification of the speed and size of the cursor for simulating pseudo-haptic bumps and holes
Anatole Lécuyer, Jean-Marie Burkhardt, Chee-Hian Tan
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1402236.1402238

In previous work on so-called pseudo-haptic textures, we investigated the possibility of simulating sensations of texture without haptic devices by using the sole manipulation of the speed of a mouse cursor (a technique called speed technique). In...

Lead-me interface for a pulling sensation from hand-held devices
Tomohiro Amemiya, Hideyuki Ando, Taro Maeda
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/1402236.1402239

When a small mass in a hand-held device oscillates along a single axis with asymmetric acceleration (strongly peaked in one direction and diffuse in the other), the holder typically experiences a kinesthetic illusion characterized by the sensation...

Auditory distance perception in an acoustic pipe
Federico Fontana, Davide Rocchesso
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/1402236.1402240

In a study of auditory distance perception, we investigated the effects of exaggeration the acoustic cue of reverberation where the intensity of sound did not vary noticeably. The set of stimuli was obtained by moving a sound source inside a...

Recalibration of rotational locomotion in immersive virtual environments
Scott A. Kuhl, Sarah H. Creem-Regehr, William B. Thompson
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/1402236.1402241

This work uses an immersive virtual environment (IVE) to examine how people maintain a calibration between biomechanical and visual information for rotational self-motion. First, we show that no rotational recalibration occurs when visual and...
