TeslaTouch is a technology that provides tactile sensation to moving fingers on touch screens. Based on TeslaTouch, we have developed applications for the visually impaired to interpret and create 2D tactile information. In this paper, we demonstrate these applications, present observations from the interaction, and discuss TeslaTouch’s potential in supporting communication among visually impaired individuals.
