Haptic technology can provide a sense of touch, either by force feedback or by different vibrations, to give different sensations to the user. It can be used in conjunction with 3D virtual reality or augmented reality environments to give improved perceptions of reality with the additional sensation of touch. This type of haptic enhanced interface can provide a sense of reality in different domains, such as 3D painting, brush-based models, calligraphy, dentistry, or training and learning in different subject fields (Perry et al. 2017; Shenoy and Shenoy 2013). There are a number of studies on the learning effectiveness of haptic systems which report how a greater sense of immersion in a learning environment can promote deep conceptual learning for difficult concepts. Haptic feedback can assist the development of fine motor skill performance in dentistry (Perry et al. 2017) and in other medical areas.
