Abstract

"Smart Finger" is a novel type of tactile display for Augmented Reality (AR) that is wearable, like a press-on fingernail. This device allows the user to feel various textures while tracing his or her fingers along smooth objects. This wearable AR interface can supplement bump mapping information to real objects.
