Haptic Mania is an application where users get to feel different substance viscosities virtually by interacting with it through a Haptic controller. Haptics is the sense of touch and using technology currently available, we created a game to help young students understand the concepts of viscosity by playing and learning at the same time.
The application uses a Falcon Novint(haptic device) to interact with different objects displayed on the screen. It was programmed in C++ using Chai3d and OpenGL to simulate different viscous fluids. It is a fun learning experience for students and helps them in their developement and understanding about viscosity.
