Abstract

The "SmartFinger" is a new type of tactile display, which is worn on the nail side of the finger. It does not inhibit our tactile sensation, since the ball of the finger is naked and we can feel the environment directly. It is important to insert nothing between a finger and an object. The "SmartFinger" can provide extra tactile sensations. For example, someone wearing this small device on his or her nail can touch a drawing on a flat sheet of paper and feel a virtual edge along the drawing's line, and virtual roughness from its texture pattern. This is a wearable device to add information of bump mapping on real surface objects using existing printing technique.
