Haptic Pendulum

The Haptic Pendulum is an abstract exploration into haptics and sound. When remotely controlling machines and devices, tactile feedback is important to understand the object being interacted with. Applying high resolution forces emulating the objects dynamics allows a closer relation between the human and the machine. Movement of the pendulum is directly felt in your hand through force feedback from the slider, providing a deeper understanding of how to manipulate it. The installation generates sound based on coordination with the object. It was created using the Motors & Music platform.
