< About the Research >
Representative research includes cross-modal interfaces that utilizes cross-modal perception (an illusion in which the perception of one sense is perceived to be altered by the influence of stimuli to different senses input simultaneously) to provide diverse multimodal experiences. For example, "Meta Cookie," a taste display that utilizes the interaction between vision, smell, and taste; "Augmented Satiety," which changes the amount of food consumed by changing the apparent size of food using AR; "Perception-based Shape Display," a shape display that presents the sensation of touching various shapes through the interaction between vision and touch; and "Unlimited Corridor," a system that makes people feel as if they are walking straight even though they are walking around a 6-meter-diameter wall by manipulating their spatial perception using visuo-haptic interaction. We are working on both the development of multisensory display systems and the elucidation of cross-modal perception.
