A directional feedback device generating a directional force feedback in free space. The device includes a force generation structure including a rotatable mass creating a physical force vector in three dimensional space. A wireless communication device and a control system communicatively coupled to the wireless communication device and the force generation system are provided. The control system receives a definition of the physical force vector to be generated from an application executing in a processing device. The control system provides instructions to the force generation system to generate the physical force vector using the force generation structure. The force generation system, the wireless communication device and the control system are enclosed in a housing.
