    Abstract

    Current 3D digital film gives us a more realistic sensation. However there is still some problem that keeps us away from immersing the horror contents. In order to find an effective way to amplify horror emotion to viewers, we propose cross modal display system to enhance horror emotion. As a first step, we developed a pseudo heart beat feedback system to give vibrotactile feedback. We made a locker-type 3d movie watching environment while generating heart beat-like vibration on the sole of the foot. We conducted the experiment to view the horror movie with the system. In this experiment, we gave two types of pseudo heart beat vibration. One is to raise heart beat vibration by referring a user’s heart rate real time. Other is to raise heart beat vibration in a stepwise manner up to predetermined heart rate value. We evaluated which method is effective to raise viewer’s real heartbeat.
