Amberg, Michel, Giraud, Frederic, Semail, Betty, Olivo, Paolo, Casiez, Géry and Roussel, Nicolas (2011): STIMTAC: a tactile input device with programmable friction. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 7-8.

We present the STIMTAC, a touchpad device that supports friction reduction. Contrary to traditional vibrotactile approaches, the STIMTAC provides information passively, acting as a texture display. It does not transfer energy to the user but modifies how energy is dissipated within the contact area by a user-initiated friction process. We report on the iterative process that led to the current hardware design and briefly describe the software framework that we are developing to illustrate its potential.
