Haptic augmentation of virtual reality

In this paper we report work which uses real objects as the means by which users interact with virtual models. Performance on a Tower of Hanoi problem was measured in different conditions. It was found that, while 'real-world5 performance was superior to that in virtual reality, use of haptic augmentation significantly improved performance in VR. Implications for the design of future VR systems are discussed.
