This paper proposes the method of interaction design to present haptic experience as intended in virtual reality (VR). The method that we named “Augmented Cross-Modality” is to translate the physiological responses, knowledge and impression about the experience in real
world into audio-visual stimuli and add them to the interaction in VR. In this study, as expressions for presenting a haptic experience of gripping an object strongly and lifting a heavy object, we design hand tremor, strong gripping and increasing heart rate in VR. The objective is, at first,
to enhance a sense of strain of a body with these augmented cross-modal expressions and then, change the quality of the total haptic experience and as a result, make it closer to the experience of lifting a heavy object. This method is evaluated by several rating scales, interviews and force
sensors attached to a VR controller. The result suggests that the expressions of this method enhancing a haptic experience of strong gripping in almost all participants and the effectiveness were confirmed.
