Abstract: In this talk, I briefly review my previous and current works in applying multimodal fusion and illusory sensation phenomena to HCI and VR. One main thread is to enhance the interaction experience in non-immersive platforms such as the wearable and mobile devices. I will illustrate how relatively high sense of presence, wide perceived field of view and significant tangibility can be achieved with reduced hardware through multimodal fusion, illusory sensation and clever interaction design. Other related notable past and present research conducted at Korea U and POSTECH will be introduced as well.
