Passing an object between two people is a common event that happens in various forms for example when giving someone a cup of coffee. An experimental study is presented where passing objects between two people in a virtual environment with haptic feedback was compared to passing objects in a nonhaptic virtual environment. The aim of the experiment was to investigate if and how added haptic feedback in such an environment affects perceived virtual presence, perceived social presence and perceived task performance. A within subject design was used, were nine pairs of subjects performed a hand off task with six differently sized cubes without audio communication. Results showed that haptic force feedback significantly improved perceived virtual presence, perceived social presence and perceived performance in this experiment.
