Force Reflecting Hand controller (FRHC) is a device that JPL (Jet Propulsion Lab) made in 1980. Its purpose is to connect human operator with objectives through a handgrip and mechanical links. The mechanical links have plurality of rotary joints that provide at least three rotational degrees of freedom and three translational degrees of freedom. Furthermore, a cable and pulley assembly is connected to a corresponding motor to transmit forces from the machine back to handgrip which provides force feedback to a human operator. Thereof, FRHC is a six-degree of freedom haptic device which provides force feedback for its operator and allows human to control objectives precisely. Our goal is Build a VR motion-sensing game by combining FRHC and Oculus Rift together.
