Description: This paper presents Virtual Whiskers, a spatial directional guidance technique using cheek haptics in a virtual space. We provide haptic stimulation on a cheek using two robot arms attached to a Head-Mounted Display. The robot arms touch a point that corresponds to directional information to present the target's directional cues.
