Identifying Common Objects Haptically Via Remote Touch

Recall the study by Klatzky et al.,21 in which subjects identified common objects using different tactual fields of view (1, 5 fingers) and different conditions of finger flexion (unconstrained, splinted). With the consequences of such constraints in mind, Lederman and Klatzky [Reference 26, Expt. 3] performed an experiment in which subjects haptically identified the same set of common objects, this time remotely, using the same small and large probes from the study by Klatzky and Lederman [Reference 4, Expts. 1 and 2]. Using a probe may be viewed much like using the single, splinted finger in the 1993 study.
