Abstract

Even though some studies have confirmed that visually impaired people have superior tactile sensation abilities, few systems based on these advantages have exploited. In this study, we developed and evaluated an interactive system that utilizes the superior abilities of the visually impaired to increase their enjoyment in a video game application. We employed the TECHTILE toolkit as a device to output tactile sensations and developed an interactive system with several types of tactile sensations. We created a system that has 3D content and a story using Unity and experimentally evaluated it.
