Perceiving Object Shape from Specular Highlight Deformation, Boundary Contour Deformation, and Active Haptic Manipulation
Haptic and visual ‘contours’ It is well known that motion facilitates the visual perception of solid object shape, particularly when surface texture or other identifiable features (e.g., corners) are present. Conventional models of structure-from-motion require the presence of… Read More
Haptic shape discrimination and interhemispheric communication
Touching. In three experiments participants haptically discriminated object shape using unimanual (single hand explored two objects) and bimanual exploration (both hands were used, but each hand, left or right, explored a separate object). Such haptic exploration (one versus… Read More
Gibson ‘Feelie’ Object Files
I’ve created a OBJ and STL repository of printable / renderable versions of Gibson’s ‘feelies’ haptic dataset. Go have a look and let me know if you download and/or use them.
Some haptic exploration recurrence. More on this later- CORM!
