We present a passive deformable haptic (PDH) glove to enhance mobile immersive augmented reality manipulation with a sense of computer-captured touch, responding to objects in the physical environment. We extend our existing pinch glove design with a Digital Foam sensor, placed under the palm of the hand. The novel glove input device supports a range of touch-activated, precise, direct manipulation modeling techniques with tactile feedback including hole-punching, trench cutting, and chamfer creation. The PDH glove helps improve a user's s task performance time, decrease error rate and erroneous hand movements, and reduce fatigue.
