Experimental set up.

A. The participant had his right arm resting on a tabletop. The arm was separated from view by a partition. The virtual arm was displayed on the screen in front of the participant. Its size and position was adjusted such that it looked correct from their point of view. The right hand was wearing the data glove. B. The participants (for the display one of the authors, BS, is represented) viewed from the front, wearing the stereo glasses and the data glove. C. Detail of the data glove. D. In the synchronous condition the virtual hand did follow the movements and finger position of the real hand tracked by the data glove.
