Abstract

We propose a novel interface called Tearable that allows users to continuously experience the real sense of tearing paper. To provide such a real sense, we measured the actual vibration data of tearing a piece of real paper and analyzed them. Based on this data, we utilized hook-and-loop fasteners and a DC motor for representing the sense of tearing. We compared the force given by Tearable with that by a piece of real paper and recommended its reproducibility and usability. In addition, we evaluated Tearable with questionnaires after user experiences.
