Surround Haptics is a new tactile technology that uses a low-resolution grid of inexpensive vibrating actuators to generate high-resolution, continuous, moving tactile strokes on human skin [1]. The user would not feel the discrete tactile pulses and buzzes that are so common today, but rather a smooth tactile motion, akin to what we feel when someone drags a finger across our skin.
