Title: Expanding the Possibilities of Physics Education with Virtual Reality and Force Feedback Devices

In the field of Physics Education, it is necessary to conduct experiments in order to understand concepts. However, the experiments that can be performed are limited due to various constraints. By using Virtual Reality (VR), the possibilities of what can be done in experiments are expanded. VR allows for experiments to be conducted in an ideal environment.

In the past, experimental systems using force feedback devices such as SPIDAR and PHANToM have been developed. These devices enable a more realistic and immersive experience in experiments.

In this study, a proposed system using two force feedback devices is introduced. The system focuses on teaching rigid body motion. The results of tests conducted after experiencing the system showed improvement, and the knowledge gained from the system could also be applied to unfamiliar rigid body motion.

Some thoughts that arose from this study include the realization that a significant amount of learning can be achieved through hands-on experiences. However, it was also noted that force feedback devices can be bulky and inconvenient. The application of force feedback, such as the sense of traction, seems promising but may be challenging to implement accurately. Additionally, it was found that VR controllers alone are not sufficient for providing force feedback, which can be inconvenient.
