This paper describes locomtion interface that presents uneven virtual surface. The term "haptics" is currently being generalized beyond just hand-object interaction. One of the new frontiers of haptic interface is full-body haptics that includes foot haptics. Force applied to a foot is essential in walking on uneven virtual surface, such as staircases. We developed a 4DOF motion platform for each foot. Two motion platforms move according with positon of the feet. These devices are mounted on a turn table, which rotates the devices according with rotation of the body. This mechanism simulates omni-directional uneven surface.
