DescriptionWe demonstrate ThermAirGlove(TAGlove), a pneumatic glove which provides concurrent on-hand thermal and force feedback by controlling the volume and temperature of the air pumped into
airbags embedded in the glove. TAGlove could generate the thermal cues of different materials (e.g., copper, glass, urethane), and support users’ material identification in VR.
