Abstract

We propose a furry and scalable multi-touch display called the "FuSA 2 Touch Display." The furry type of tactile sensation of this surface affords various interactions such as stroking or clawing. The system utilizes plastic fiber optic bundles to realize a furry-type texture. The system can show visual feedback by projection and detects multi-touch input using a diffused illumination technique. We employed the optical feature of plastic fiber optics to integrate the input and output systems into such a simple configuration that the display becomes scalable. We implemented a 24-inch display, evaluated the visual feedback and touch detection features, and found that our implemented display encourages users to interact with it in various actions.
