Navigation in 5D space by visual and Haptic Feedback



Higher dimensional space enhances in intellectual activity of human beings. 3D graphics contains much more information than 2D graphics. We proposed visual and haptic representation of five-demensional space. Our 5D space is generated by scanning 3D cube. The user's hand can essentially move in 3D space. We therefor use rotational motion of the hand for scanning 3D cube in 5D cube. The 3D cube is cutting volume of the 5D cube. The cutting volume moves by rotational motion around roll and pitch axis of the user's hand. Force display presents potensial field which indicates axis of rotation. Usability of the 5D cube is examined through recognition performance tests.
