Handing over objects is a common event during collaboration in face-to-face interaction. Weinvestigate how such an event can be supported when the interaction takes place in virtual space. In a formalexperiment, subjects passed a series of cubic objects to each other and tapped them at target areas. Theirperformance with and without haptic force feedback was evaluated. Furthermore, we placed our study in theframework of Fitts’ law and hypothesized that object hand off constituted a collaboratively performed Fitts’ lawtask. Our results showed that task completion time indeed linearly increased with Fitts’ index of difficulty, bothwith and without force feedback. The time required for passing objects did not differ significantly between thehaptic and nonhaptic condition. However, the error rate was significantly lower with haptic feedback thanwithout.
