Thread: A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface (VIMPHIN)

  1. Thumbs up A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface (VIMPHIN)

    Hey all, as promised here's a preview of my VIMPHIN - A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface
    which is meant to be an OpenSource haptics interfacing device for VR&AR (haptic feedback is coming soon to the next version):


    demo video:

    It's for my masters degree project and as soon as v0.3b is out i'll release everything (FW/Assembly/InterfacingLibs/DemoApp) under an OSHW compatible license


    What do you guys think of it?

    VIMPHIN is back! now implementing haptic feedback! Collision with virtual objects and variable resistance to motion!
    checkout the videos below :




    and a bonus: Pointcloud generating 3d scanner =D

  3. Re: A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface (VIMPHIN)

    Thats really nice, i like how you keep adding new features, especially the pointcloud one is impressive. Apart from your thesis(?) are you thinking of making it a actual product? (like some advanced 3d mouse) or will it just be for you?

    @Suicidal.Banana :
    Thanks! The Idea is to create a low cost "kit" that can be distributed among laboratories (or individual researchers/students) that are currently researching haptics =) (attempting to lower the entry cost on the field)



  6. Re: A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface (VIMPHIN)

    Nice idea!

    Also, i was wondering, did you try combine the two yet? it would be pretty freaky to have feedback when using it with the pen, "feeling" a 3d object on your screen.

  7. Re: A Reconfigurable Virtual Manipulator Physical Interface (VIMPHIN)

    I haven't tried to combine the two modes yet, I'll put it on the TODO list at the Lab

    Hehe ok, good luck
