    Colorful Touch Palette

Abstract:


    Previously, pictures were painted using tools such as crayons or even by hand. Surfaces such as canvases or walls, provided the tactile sensations of the drawing surface while painting. However, this tactile experience has got lost because of advances in computer graphics software. Besides, a conventional multi-touch interface [1] can not provide tactile sensation. We propose a novel interactive painting interface called “Colorful Touch Palette” that may help us to rediscover our creativity. The user can touch the canvas having the electrode, select or blend tactile textures of their choice, draw a line, and experience the tactile sensations of painting as shown in Figure 1. Various tactile textures can be created by blending textures as paints. This interface can be used to design complex spatial tactile patterns for haptic-friendly products. Moreover, this system can be potentially used to create novel tactile paintings.
