Withana, Anusha, Kondo, Makoto, Kakehi, Gota, Makino, Yasutoshi, Sugimoto, Maki and Inami, Masahiko (2010): ImpAct: enabling direct touch and manipulation for surface computing. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 411-412. Available online

This paper explores direct touch and manipulation techniques for surface computing platforms using a special force feedback stylus named ImpAct (Immersive Haptic Augmentation for Direct Touch). Proposed haptic stylus can change its length when it is pushed against a display surface. Correspondingly, a virtual stem is rendered inside the display area so that user perceives the stylus immersed through to the digital space below the screen. We propose ImpAct as a tool to probe and manipulate digital objects in the shallow region beneath display surface. ImpAct creates a direct touch interface by providing kinesthetic haptic sensations along with continuous visual contact to digital objects below the screen surface.
