Haptics-enabled virtual reality technologies allow users to sense force feedback and tactile feedback while manipulating 3D objects. This paper proposes a haptic gaming system which can contribute to improve the ability for discerning tactile textures and 3D shapes by using force and tactile feedbacks of the users' fingers. The authors' haptic gaming system consists of three games: "Haptic puzzle" for tactile texture cognition, "Shape puzzle" for 3D geometric object cognition and "Position puzzle" for 3D space cognition.
