Abstract: Abstract: While the animation and rendering techniques used in the domain of textile simulation have dramatically evolved during the last two decades, the ability to manipulate and modify virtual textiles intuitively using dedicated ergonomic devices has been definitely neglected. The project HAPTEX combines research in the field of textile simulation and haptic interfaces. HAPTEX aims to provide a virtual reality system allowing for multipoint haptic interaction with a piece of virtual fabric simulated in real-time. The fundamental research undertaken by the project ranges from the physics-based simulation of textiles to the design and development of novel tactile and force-feedback rendering strategies and interfaces.
