In this paper, a new haptic human interface device to communicate with a virtual world, which we named Sensor Glove II (SGII), is presented. SGII, which is drawn on the human hand, corresponds to the dexterous manipulation of human fingers and acquires angles and torque of each joint. SGII adds the reaction forces of a virtual object to the fingers. The forces are calculated in the Dynamic Force Simulator we have developed. We outline the design, characteristics and structure of SGII, and display preliminary experimental result to verify the stability and performance of SGII.
