This paper presents a new force feedback glove for manipulation of virtual objects. The glove is comprised of wire, link, servo motor, force sensor, and joint angle sensor of fingers. These devices are mounted to the back of glove. The object grasping sense is generated by the force feedback control of the servo motor. We show the force transmission characteristics of the glove and the experimental results of recognition of the difference in rigidity of object.
