Haptic Thingy

There are a lot of changes going on in my professional life. Some of them have to do with this:

Haptic Device

That's a haptic device. The word "haptic" refers to the sense of touch. The project I've been working on for over a decade is ending and I am transitioning to a project in which we explore the possible role of touch in math and science education.

Right now I'm just learning the API used to build 3D worlds and activities with this thing. Here's a sample in an annotated YouTube video. You won't be able to feel the cube in the video because you don't have a haptic device (plus -- it's just a video!) but you can see my first accomplishment. Thanks for the help, Ryan!
