Abstract: It is known that humans perceive a sense of force, like a pulling sensation in a particular direction, when asymmetric vibrations are presented. However, the perceptual mechanism of this illusion has not been well clarified. We have developed a device that can control the vibrations for quantitative evaluation of the pulling sensation induced by exerting asymmetric vibrations to user’s fingertip. It was confirmed that this device can generate acceleration of target asymmetric vibration even if frequency and participants are changed.
