A new type of tactile, wearable augmented-reality display:
a nail chip that allows users to feel various textures
as they trace their fingers along smooth objects.
Novel tactile display.
Future applications of this technology will place a miniaturized
control circuit and a battery on the back of the hand
to enable a hands-free pointing device. The purpose of
our research is to analyze the structure of human behavior.
We also want to apply this technology to extend the capability
of visually impaired people.
