Abstract

The Embossed Touch Display is a novel tactile display that can present any given width of objects. When we touch objects in space, we actively move our hands and fingers. Due to this active touch movement, we can perceive the shape of an object, even though the object may be larger than the fingertip. With the Embossed Touch Display, when the object is moved in the same or opposite direction of the hand movement, the width of the object is perceived to elongate or shrink. By controlling the velocity and position of the object during hand movement, any given width can be displayed.
