The Hanger Reflex is a phenomenon in which the head rotates unintentionally when it is sandwiched by a wire hanger. The reflex is effectively generated by pressing on specific points, and can be reproduced by pressing with an actuator. We propose the HangerOVER, an HMD-embedded haptic display that can provide both force and motion senses using the Hanger Reflex. In this paper, we designed a mechanism of controlling the Hanger Reflex using air balloons for HMD embedded haptic display, and confirmed the occurrence of the Hanger Reflex.
