|Title:||FEEDBACK DEVICE, CONTENT REPRODUCTION DEVICE, THERMAL EXPERIENCE PROVIDING SYSTEM, AND THERMAL EXPERIENCE PROVIDING METHOD|
The present invention relates to a feedback device, a content reproduction device, a thermal experience providing system, and a thermal experience providing method. A thermal experience providing method according to an aspect of the present invention comprises the steps of: reproducing a multimedia content including image data for a video and thermal feedback data for thermal feedback associated with a specific scene of the video; obtaining the start time of a thermoelectric operation for the thermal feedback, wherein, in consideration of the time delay required between the start of the thermoelectric operation and a user's sensation of the thermal feedback, the start time of the thermoelectric operation is set to a time point earlier than the output time of the specific scene; and when the start time of the thermoelectric operation is reached while the multimedia content is reproduced, transmitting a feedback start message to a feedback device that outputs the thermal feedback by using a thermoelectric element, and when the output time of the specific scene is reached while the multimedia content is reproduced, outputting the specific scene through a display, so as to provide the user with the specific scene and the thermal feedback associated therewith at the output time of the specific scene.
