It is proposed that a hybrid sensory feedback system comprising a visual peripheral component together with a haptic component corresponding to that of visual foveal information, is equivalent to that of full visual sensory feedback. Such a system is constructed and the ability of subjects to perceive objects using it is investigated by observing and classifying their search strategy. Although the provision of a peripheral component provides advantages over a purely haptic system, it is concluded that subjects rely heavily on the haptic data, and the resulting hybrid system is not equivalent to full vision.
