so the main questions i want to ask right now are:
the basic idea of my experiment is, to build my own peripheral devices which can be mapped within a virtual space to determine the possiblity of substituting haptic sensations within the virtual reality. to portray a large spectrum of haptic sensations, i built three different cubes . cube 1 is made of standard wooden mdf plates, cube 2 is built out of aluminium and cube 3 is made from PMMA (also known as acrylic glass) with the dimension of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm. to ensure that all of the cubes have the same weight, the respective faces of the cubes vary in thickness, so that each of the cubes weights about 700g. within the cube there is an arduino board with a ble chip, a gyro and an accelerometer to measure the cubes orientation and to send the data wireless to a computer. it it supplied by a standard 9 V Batterie to let it work fully self-sufficient. to receive information about the relative orientation of the users arms to the cube, htc vive controllers are attached to them.
