PROFEEL: Low Cost Visual-Haptic Perceptualization of Protein
We describe ProFeel, an application for exploring molecular data
from protein structure-structure alignments using a force-feedback
joystick. Protein structure analysis is a useful application for
multimodal information perceptualization because researchers in
this area typically use several independent measures in assessment.
A system that allows the user to simultaneously evaluate different
criteria would therefore be quite useful. Four variables are
assigned three different haptic effects each to allow the user
to discern twelve separate data values. The haptic representation
is coupled with a traditional molecular graphics visual display.
