When a head is equipped with a hanger made of wire sideways, and its temporal region is sandwiched by the hanger, the head rotates unexpectedly. We named the phenomenon "Hanger Reflex", and we have studied this phenomenon to understand its mechanism and to show the possibility of utilizing the phenomenon as a human interface or for rehabilitation. In this paper, we evaluated that the necessary conditions of the Hanger Reflex are compressions to temporofromtal region of the head and its counter position. We also developed an interface that can induce head rotation by Hanger Reflex, without giving pain to the user.

Most game players want to improve their skills, but if they don't sense improvement they'll give up playing. So, we suggest a new way of dynamically adjusting a game's difficulty, in a way that is transparent to the player. In an experiment with a platforming game that focuses on jumping and hitting a target, players felt they were becoming better at the game instead of noticing the decrease in difficulty.

Wearable devices have been numerously reported so far which aim to augment eating experience by applying crossmodal perception that multiple senses are interacting with each other and are integrated as one experience. As for devices which append sensory stimuli artificially, it is considered that multisensory integration would be lost if a delay between multiple sensory stimuli arises. On the other hand, a novel experience could be also obtained by utilizing the delay. This research investigated the perception of a time-lag between delayed auditory feedback of chewing potatochips and actual chewing behavior. As a result, most of the participants perceived time-lags at more than 200 [ms], and this result can be attributed to the durations of closing and occlusal phase of mastication. This research also investigated the effect of the time-lag on “zakuzaku” (crunchy) feeling of potatochips. As a result, 100 [ms] time-lag augments zakuzaku feeling most, and the evaluation values of zakuzaku feeling tend to vary more widely when the time-lag becomes perceived. According to the above results, this paper showed that delayed auditory feedback of mastication could augment zakuzaku feeling without spoiling multisensory integration.

This paper describes a new robust registration framework, which is named "UG+B", for Augmented or Mixed Reality (AR/MR) applications. Our methods measure pose of a head-mounted display (HMD) using not only an image captured by a user's view camera mounted on the HMD, but also images captured by bird's-eye view cameras each of which observes the HMD from a third-person's viewpoint, as well as an orientation measured by a sensor mounted on the HMD. In our methods, the markers placed in the scene and that on the HMD are tracked on the user's view and the bird's-eye view image respectively. Then, the pose of the HMD is estimated to minimize the sum of the re-projection error for all markers. Furthermore, the inclination angles measured by the orientation sensor are used as known values to constrain the pose, thus, the remaining parameters, i.e. the position and azimuth angle, are deduced by image information. In addition to theoretical discussions, this paper demonstrates the effectiveness of our methods by experiments in comparison with conventional vision-based registration methods.

Application of the Hanger Reflex to walking navigation was investigated. The Hanger Reflex is a phenomenon that produces an illusory force and involuntary rotation of the body parts by skin deformation. It was first applied at the head by using a wire hanger, but is now known to work on many body parts such as the waist, wrist, and ankle. In the experiment combining Hanger Reflex devices at the head, waist, and ankle, we confirmed that the waist-type Hanger Reflex is the most effective, and that combined Hanger Reflex imparted limited influence on the results.

The representation of the peripersonal space is remapped by body action such as integrating tactile stimuli from the body's surface with multisensory stimuli presented within a limited distance from the body. Previous study showed that boundaries of the peipersonal space extend while walking with listening to a looming sound, but it is unclear whether the boundaries change when a sensation of walking is induced with no physical body motion. Here, we examine the change using a technique to induce a sensation of pseudo-walking by presenting vibrotactile stimuli of recorded footsteps sound at the feet soles. Experiments were performed to compare the reaction times to detect a vibrotactile stimulus on the chest with listening to a looming sound toward the body, taken as a proxy of the peripersonal space boundary. Experimental evaluations showed that the peripersonal space seems to expand when a sensation of pseudo-walking was clearly induced.

This paper investigated the effects of active/passive viewing on the visually induced motion sickness. Participants wearing a Head-Mount-Display (HMD) searched a target character in random dots and other characters projected on a screen using a video camera moved by them (active viewing). They could see a part of the screen and the movies displayed via the HMD were recorded. When they saw the recorded movie later (passive viewing) through the HMD, they felt motion sickness worth than before. This suggests that passive viewing induced severer motion sickness than active viewing.

Listening music with mobile devices is now a part of our daily life. With the aim of generating vibration-based feedback to enrich musical listening experiences with mobile devices, we have applied a frequency shifting method, which was proposed previously in the literature for mixer manipulation or cross-modal relationship between tactile and auditory stimuli. Experimental results showed that the proposed method significantly increased the listener's evaluation of sound consisting of high-frequency components.

In this study, the effects on concentration of attention, cognitive activity such as memory was examined in consideration of humans' cognitive characteristic over 3D images about the partial 3D image which changed a part of picture. The experiment of concentration of attention was carried out by measuring reaction time in visual search task using a simple visual target and eye fixation while viewing natural color image. On the other hand, the experiment of cognitive effect such as memory, the searching time until the changes are recognized were computed using the change blindness subject. That needs the cognitive activity of comparing by memorizing a picture temporarily while turning a look for detection of change. As a result, it was suggested by the partial 3D image that an object has the cognitive effect which is easy to go up to consciousness and to remain in memory.

This paper reports on the effect of the physical state of the body on touch sensations caused by collisions with virtual objects. The collision of a virtual object with a user's body in a virtual environment may cause an illusory touch, or haptic, sensation. We hypothesize that a real-world touch sensation of moving air on skin may augment an illusory touch sensation created by the visual representation of a collision with an object in a virtual scene. To assess this hypothesis, we performed experiments evaluating touch sensation in three conditions: with the user's body covered, with the user's body uncovered, and when blowing air onto the user. Our results showed that a touch sensation was strongly induced in the condition where the user's body was uncovered. Furthermore, the effect of blowing air onto the user differed depending on the body part that was stimulated and the representation of the virtual object. These results suggest that the top-down and bottom-up information for illusory touch sensation such as the user's physical state and the touch sensation of the air on skin had affected each other.

In Mixed-Reality space, it appeared that the sense of weight can be affected by a MR visual stimulation with a movable portion. We named this psychophysical influence caused by the difference between dynamics of the real object (R) and the virtual object (V) movement, the “R-V Dynamics Illusion”. There are many combinations of experiments that can be conducted. Previously, we conducted experiments of the case where the real object is rigid and the virtual object is dynamically changeable. In this paper, we conducted experiments of the case where the real object is liquid and both the real and the virtual objects are dynamically changeable. The results of the experiments showed that the subjects sensed weight differently when virtual object with a movable portion is superimposed onto a real liquid object.

There are numerous proposals of tactile displays that aim to improve music listening experiences. However, these devices commonly have problems, such as the heavy weight and large size of the device due to numerous actuators, which lead to long setup time and user confinement to the system. To address these issues, we proposed to present vibration via user's collarbone. In this paper, we first investigated whether presenting vibration to the collarbone really contributes vibration transmission to wider areas of a user's body. Then, we performed a psychophysical experiment to evaluate subjective vibration effect with actual music listening experience. Results suggest that presenting vibration through the collarbone induces vibration transmission to wider area, and contributes user's subjective music listening experience.

We propose a novel display method, EnchanTable, that can augment a table surface with mid-air images. Users can interact with visual images displayed on the table by using real objects. In our optical design, we place an optical imaging device behind a table, and the light from the device forms a vertically standing mid-air image reflected at the table surface. This design displays the image right on the table. The merit of our method is that the requirement for the table is only a reflective surface. Utilizing this, we can add extra devices, such as touch sensors, around the table, or display mid-air images on a tablet whose surface is sufficiently reflective. Owing to its compactness, this method can be applied to other tabletop-interaction systems.

The oral muscle weakness gives a bad influence to the usual life activities such as swallowing and utterance. However, the conventional training methods in use to ease these problems are monotone and therefore result in the discontinuity of training. This research adds a new function - mouth shape recognition - to SITA (a Simple Interface for Tongue motion Acquisition) and uses it to develop “Squachu” application. Squachu is a sports game using player's mouth not only for seniors but also for everyone regardless of their gender and age. This paper performed the experiment that 4 seniors played Squachu for approximately 1 week. As a result, almost participant's evaluated values of RSST and oral diadochokinesis tends to improve. Also it appeared that participants had positive attitude towards playing Squachu. These results suggest that Squachu can be one of the training for helping oral muscle. This paper describes the system configuration and presents the evaluation results of Squachu training effects on seniors.
