Abstract

Holes often excite our curiosity and eventually people will want to look inside them. In this research, focusing the attention on this “hole exploration” and corresponding actions as an element of interactive entertainment, we developed a hole-type device named “HOJI*HOJI”. HOJI*HOJI is equipped with a hole that can recognize finger position through the use of pressure sensors. Force feedback is also implemented within the device for realizing interaction between the ‘hole’ and the user’s finger. For proof of concept, an interactive game application was made for HOJI*HOJI and was exhibited at 2 events to confirm whether this ‘hole’ can attract people’s curiosity.
