A role for haptics in mobile interaction: initial design using a handheld tactile display prototype
Mobile interaction can potentially be enhanced with welldesigned haptic control and display. However, advances have been limited by a vicious cycle whereby inadequate haptic technology obstructs inception of vitalizing applications. We present the first stages of a systematic design effort to break that cycle, beginning with specific usage scenarios and a new handheld display platform based on lateral skin stretch. Results of a perceptual device characterization inform mappings between device capabilities and specific roles in mobile interaction, and the next step of hardware re-engineering. Author Keywords Mobile, haptic, tactile, handheld interaction, multimodal, display, design process, lateral skin stretch. ACM Classification Keywords H5.2 [Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI)]: User Interfaces, Haptic I/O.
