We proposed a novel haptic interface to be worn over the entire hand. This interface allows realistic and responsive haptic interactions in virtual reality environments via a simple method that considers the importance of the unconscious perception of haptic sensations for recognizing the existence of the external world. GhostGlove provides an unprecedented feeling of the dynamics of virtual objects and the vitality of virtual creatures.
