We have been developing and combining state-of-art devices that allow humans to visualize and feel synthetic objects superimposed on the real world. This effort stems from the need of platform for extending experiments on motor control and learning to realistic human motor tasks and environments, not currently represented in the practice of research. This paper's goal is to outline our motivations, progress, and objectives. Because the system is a general tool, we also hope to motivate researchers in related fields to join in. The platform under development, an augmented reality system combined with a haptic-interface robot, will be a new tool for contributing to the scientific knowledge base in the area of human movement control and rehabilitation robotics. Because this is a prototype, the system will also guide new methods by probing the levels of quality necessary for future design cycles and related technology. Inevitably, it should also lead the way to commercialization of such systems.
