Fernando Carneiro, Manuel Rodrigues Quintas, Paulo Abreu, Maria Teresa Restivo


This work describes the design and testing of a 1 degree of freedom (DOF) haptic device, for interaction with virtual reality (VR) applications. This device was designed so that it could to be easily assembled by anyone at a reduced price. Instructions for device assembly, as well as some VR appli-cations are available online. The tests performed on the device proved that, despite its low cost, it is able to provide users with a good haptic experience and is adequate for not complex applications.
