CFP: ToH Special issue on Haptics in the Metaverse: Haptic Feedback for Virtual, Augmented, Mixed, and eXtended Realities

Haptic sensations are a fundamental component of the user’s immersive experience when interacting in Virtual/Augmented/Mixed/eXtended Realities (VR/AR/MR/XR). In the last few years, we have witnessed the rapid development of many innovative devices and original techniques for providing haptic sensations, e.g., using force feedback, mid-air interfaces, props, or exploiting perceptual phenomena with cross-modal effects such as pseudo-haptics. While increasingly immersive and realistic experiences have developed at a fast pace, the emergence of a metaverse proposes new use cases where prolonged utilisation and social interactions become more frequent and effective than reality. This change in direction presents the haptics community with new challenges and opportunities. To that end, the goal of this Special Issue is to present innovative cutaneous and tactile technologies as well as their use towards the metaverse vision.
