In the current world, by and large, computer interaction relies on visual and auditory feedback and to make interactions more realistic, tactile response would be essential e.g. for medical training simulations. Haptic interfaces would make the digital models to be probed and felt by the users and more specifically in a medical world by medical students, these simulations, also can reduce costs and provide experience with a greater variety of pathologies, and enable the trainee to repeat training procedures over and over without the need for a cadaver. The system being developed as part of this research program will enable it to be used in conjunction with a simple surgical simulation which will have both visual and tactile feedback. The simulation allows users to not only see an on-screen computer application, but to actually 'feel' it by touching and manipulating virtual objects.
