Developed at the Technology Institute of Tokyo, this Virtual Canoe system consists of wired paddles that are loaded with “sensors to create the sensation of actually being present on the virtual river –the haptic feedback was great and gave a very natural feeling of being on water.” Video after the jump.

The projects goals are to invent a real-time fluid model for virtual reality, visualization/haptizations methods for the fluid model, and to understand the fluid-phenomena simulations in engineering
