Abstract

In this paper, we propose handy haptic devices which allow users seem-less manipulating multimedia data in an extended information environment. They are designed with the shape of every day tools, such as scissors, tweezers and syringe, which shapes denote their functional uses as proper affordances. In addition, the devices have haptic and thermo- feedback functions which display the quantity and freshness of information. We develop two types of handy haptic devices; a syringe device and tweezers device. Also, we realize extended information environments where users are able to access computerdata by those haptic devices without any conventional input devices; text editor among networked computers and sound control with a metaphor of liquid. The results of subject evaluations show that the proposed handy devices were easy to understand how to use and the notations of their haptic and thermo- feedbacks without any explanations in advance.
