Multi-touch screens and surfaces for manipulating digital content play a crucial role in mobile and ubiquitous computing. Augmenting these interactive surfaces with tactile feedback has been found to increase interaction speed, reduce operating errors and minimize visual and cognitive load. Communicating detailed tactile characteristics of virtual elements,(More)
We present the PhantomStation, a novel interface that communicates tactile feedback to remote parts of the user's body. Thus, touch input on interactive surfaces can be augmented with synchronous tactile sensations. With the objective to reduce the number of tactile actuators on the user's body, we use the psychophysical Phantom Sensation (PhS) [1]. This(More)
