In this paper, we discuss a method for presenting virtual objects to multiple fingers on both hands using multiple single-point haptic devices operating over a network. We evaluated the effect of the number of fingers used on ability to recognize shapes using this system. The experimental results suggest that the number of contact points do not sufficiently improve the ability to recognize shapes, and the method used for recognizing object shape is rather different between using one finger and using multiple fingers.
