The Haptic Capstans: Rotational Force Feedback for Music using a FireFader Derivative Device

Sheffield, Eric and Berdahl, Edgar and Pfalz, Andrew

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The Haptic Capstans are two rotational force-feedback knobs circumscribed by eye-catching LED rings. In this work, the Haptic Capstans are programmed using physical models in order to experiment with audio-visual-haptic interactions for music applications.
