Abstract

We introduce eyeglasses that present haptic feedback when using gaze gestures for input. The glasses utilize vibrotactile actuators to provide gentle stimulation to three locations on the user's head. We describe two initial user studies that were conducted to evaluate the easiness of recognizing feedback locations and participants' preferences for combining the feedback with gaze gestures. The results showed that feedback from a single actuator was the easiest to recognize and also preferred when used with gaze gestures. We conclude by presenting future use scenarios that could benefit from gaze gestures and haptic feedback.
