Abstract

This paper presents a novel two-fingers exoskeleton kinesthetic interaction in Virtual Reality (VR): the proposed design of the exoskeleton prioritizes the performance of the device in terms of low weight, good adaptability to different size of the human hand. This design made also the exoskeleton well wearable and allows strong force feedback which is an important parameter for a realistic kinesthesis of manipulated objects in VR.
