In this paper, we describe the development of a novel, low-cost, compact sensor/actuator that can be integrated with a commercially-available haptic device, such as the Geomagic Touch, to provide additional capability when grasping virtual objects. The focus of this paper is to investigate the impact of modality on a 'picking and placing' task using the prototype. The results of this study suggest that fewer errors were made when grasping objects presented using force-input/vibrotactile output (FV) combined with force-feedback. The multimodal feedback presented via the prototype is thought to offer considerable potential to supporting skilled and semi-skilled workers to perform remote tasks involving fine motor control.
