The work that has been done in order to use the sense of touch, which is considered to be the most important sense of human, for human machine interaction has gained a great speed in recent years. In this paper, experiments and results using haptic actuators and three-dimensional sounds are presented in order to increase tactile activity on the user. Two different haptic interaction algorithms have been developed in the direction of these results. Moreover, as a result of experiments on human subjects, comparisons were made according to the combination of perceptual successes of the haptic effect, with each other, and environmental contributions such as voice presence and absence.
