This paper describes an experiment conducted to investigate the benefits of force feedback for virtual reality training. Three groups of subjects received different levels of training before completing a manual task, the construction of a LEGO(tm) biplane model. One group trained on a Virtual Building Block (VBB) simulation which emulates the real task in a virtual environment, including haptic feedback. A second group also trained on the VBB system, but without the force feeback. The last group received no virtual reality training. Completion times for these different groups in building the actual biplane model in the real world were compared.
