—The paper presents a prototyped jointed control interface approach for understanding hapticised web content and augmented reality (AR) on a work-in-progress instructive platform of haptics (IPOH) over the unreliable network. Our works, in this context, are comprised by two parts. Firstly, we propose a joint user interface SPIDAR-if empowering finger tracking and physical force sense. SPIDAR-if includes a recently notable pocket-sized 3D sensor named “Leap Motion” as an input device and incorporates with another passive 2-degree-of-freedom (DOF) tactile device “SPIDAR” with upturned manipulations in order to truly represent the sense of touch interactions on IPOH system, such as tactile feedbacks derived from in-progressive verbs, HTML components and moving 3D spheres. On the other side, we study the eligibility of SPIDAR-if and its aids with regard to AR world and web content intelligibility in IPOH system which offers the Internet users a bridge to embrace virtual reality by virtue of assisted user interface, wrapping up haptic and web graphical rendering techniques as well as provided virtual environments (VE). Examples of hapticised web content and a 3D AR scenario approaching SPIDAR-if on IPOH with the fingertip are also presented along with preliminary findings.
